This last week nobody complain about high cost of electric power, at least not in Northern and Central Norway. The wind is blowing and the snow is melting in the mountains so power production exceed consumption.
At the same time the sun is shining Northern Europe, so the export flow is minimal, or reversed.
Last week the price per kWh was as low as -1.45 øre on the spot market here in NW Norway:

Fast ferry (HSC) hit wind surfer:
The Norwegian Cup in several classes in windsurfing was held at Torkildstranda in Drøbak on Sunday.
The fast ferry “Baronen” collided with one of the sailors. It runs a fixed route B21 between Filtvet, Drøbak and Aker Brygge, Oslo VG’s reporter, Karin Muri, witnessed the incident. The ferryboat came north while the fjord was full of windsurfers. It drove through the field at high speed and hit one of the athletes. Other witnesses also tell VG this.
All activity at the competition has stopped, says Muri.
The police are on the scene
I can confirm that there has been a collision between a ferry and a windsurfer. The reason for what happened and who is to blame I cannot say, it is too early, says operations manager Finn Håvard Aas at the East police district.
