Electricty bills head for record levels again

Electricty Bills Soar Again

The continued cold snap in Sweden has once again seen electricty bills surge towards record levels.

The cost per kilowatt per hour is upto 13.80 kronor (1.9 dollars) at Nordpool electricty company.

A new record was set back in December when prices jumped to 14 kronor per hour. The prices have jumped due to the extreme cold and the problems with some of the country's nuclear reactors.
