The View From Your Electric Bill: 16 cents/kWh in Norway

Today, I’m continuing on with The View From Your Electric Bill, a series of posts designed to float the ultimate political heresy: maybe, just maybe, idiotically low electricity prices in Venezuela have a little something to do with overconsumption and, thereby, with the electric crisis. 

We come to Norway, another Petrostate with vast hydro-electric potential, but one governed by people who are technically sane. I couldn’t make heads or tails of this charactristically complicated Scandinavian bill, but our Norwegian correspondent reports that the bottom line is he’s paying a stinging 16 cents per kilowatt hour for his power. Ouch!
