  • In December last year, the war in Ukraine had not started, so you can stop defending electricity prices with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.


    We have no intention or reason to “defend” any high electricity prices.

  • Hey!

    How old are you when you write “at the age of 55”?

    Are you 55, 51, 59 or does everything between 51 and 59 fit in?

    Why not just write the correct age?


    People aged 55 are older than 51 but they are not 59 ?

    Sometimes we write like that because we don’t know exactly.

    It can also be for publicity reasons. To protect the person’s identity a little extra.

  • Hi, just want to urge everyone to wear reflectors.many are wearing dark clothes and can’t be seen, especially now when it’s dark and rainy! You are terrified of running over someone when they are just stepping out into the street!


    Thanks for the reminder, Eva!

  • Why is it that every single event – which is normal year after year – is predicted to send electricity prices soaring? Everything so far happens regularly?


    Even if something happens regularly, there may be reasons to report, for example if many people are affected.

    New for this year is the war in Ukraine, which means that Europe no longer receives gas from Russia.

    That is one of the reasons why electricity has become expensive in Europe – and thus in Sweden, because we have a common electricity market with other countries.

  • Hi I haven’t seen any report on how hot it is during the World Cup in soccer. There were a lot of discussions before.
