This support is a one-off payment to private individuals to assist in managing high electricity prices, here and now. It is not a refund or compensation for your actual electricity costs.
The support does not include other costs, such as transmission fees on your electricity network invoice, electricity certificate fees or cost increases for other energy sources such as gas, pellets or district heating.
Electricity support for November and December 2022 will be paid to private individuals throughout Sweden. Svenska kraftnät’s proposal on electricity support is supported by the Energy Markets Inspectorate (Ei).
We are now waitning for the governments regulation and are unable to answer questions about the payment until the regulation is official.

Private individuals are individuals who do not represent a company, organisation or association, only themselves as an individual.
Legal entities such as estates and associations are not considered private individuals.
Business owners and legal entities are not included in the same electricity support that is paid to private individuals.
A legal entity is an organization that can make deals, own property, have claims or debts and be a party in court. For example a limited company, a trading company, an association, a housing cooperative, a foundation, a bankruptcy estate or a municipality.
Estates are also legal entities but on February 9th the government decided that estates shall be part of the electricity support for October 2021 – September 2022, that will be paid out to private individuals starting February 20th 2023. We will update the web site with more information as soon as we know when and how the electricity support will be paid to estates.
Do not give out personal codes!
