I've never seen an invoice during my time here, so far.

SEK per kW/h? Cheaper in the evening?

Very recent bill for my cottage 2925 kr for 1692 units. So thats 1.73 kr per unit.

Unlike the UK, the bill is broken down between the charge to the power supplier and the charge (part useage related) to the network owner. There is an energy tax and also normal 25% moms (VAT).

There is of course just like the UK the choice of supplier if you want to shop around.

ps Just looked again and the base supplier rate without taxes was 83 öre in Dec and 76 öre per kWh in Jan so like Furu says quite variable.

pps Just interesting to look closer. The network charge is aflat rate of 1400 kr pa plus 8.96 öre per kWh

Medium sized one story fritidshus - take your pick.

Cost for 2 months, occupied twice, so with 2 heat ups to 22 deg and the rest background heat, set fairly warm to prevent the internal water pipes freezing. Cant be fagged draining it all down when we visit almost every month.

Just a further recall. We average 5000 units a year.

The earlier figure was about 3 months use mid Nov to mid Jan. Cos in reality their annual estimate is so crap. Having got fed up with very uneven billing, I started updating late autumn on the suppliers web site after each visit we make. One year they charged for 1000 units too many. This time I could see they were badly underestimating.

Its a piece of cake inputting my own reading, and all the bills and useage are on line to inspect. Nice.

Not cheaper in the evening.

Costs approx between 1,50 and 2,50 per kWh.

Don't be fooled by the companies saying that electricity is 53 öre per unit, or whatever ...

This is just a sneaky con trick, and why the konsument people haven't put a stop to this nonsense is a total mystery to me.

Sack the lot of them.

Anything above 1,50, in my opinion, is scandalous!
