  • The government's proposal to compensate hard-hit households consuming more than 2,000 kilowatt hours per month has come as a relief to some of those with hefty electricity bills for December.

  • Jason Wilding, who lives with his family on a small farm near Halmstad on the west coast of Sweden, got a bill of over SEK 9,000 for last month.

  • "It was a big bill and it's a shock, of course it is," he tells Radio Sweden.
