The general subsidy is available for companies with business operations in electrical areas 3 and 4, and which had a valid agreement regarding connection to the electricity grid on 17 November 2022 at the latest. The subsidy will be administered by the Swedish Tax Agency and as such, made available through the company's tax account.
The amount of electricity subsidy that an eligible company may receive is based on that company's electricity consumption during the period October 2021 to September 2022. The subsidy itself amounts to SEK 0.79 per consumed kWh for companies in electrical area 4, and SEK 0.50 per consumed kWh for companies in electrical area 3. The maximum amount a company, or a group, may receive is SEK 20 million.
The application is estimated to be open between 30 May and 25 September 2023, and will be available on the Swedish Tax Agency's website.
