Take care of the family silver

Allowed amounts almost all strømproduksjonen in Norway and is the backbone of the power system. It is mainly publicly owned. It is emission-free and the water is everlasting. The power plants are, however, not everlasting. They wear, and it is about to be a serious challenge.

't been so bad on the seven years! dinside

Close to half of the capacity was built over 50 years ago. According to the NVE takes the 50 billion to 2030 to the rehabilitation of existing power plants, just to maintain current production.

the telltale should light with Siv Jensen and Erna Solberg, but the government's tax policy is a poor answer to this challenge. A vannkraftselskap as the past years have given priority to profit and benefited from tax cuts.

corporate taxes were at 28 per cent in 2013 and is now reduced to 22 per cent. A company that has invested in the upgrades, however, have been punished.

the Explanation is that the resource rent tax for vannkraftnæringen has increased from 30 to 37 per cent since 2013. Allowed belongs to the community, so it is right and proper that the income is taxed beyond the corporate tax. The problem is that it is not given a deduction for interest in resource rent tax, only a low skjermingsfradrag of 0.7 per cent. Allowance has been unchanged in the last statsbudsjettene.

Thus, the many investments unprofitable, and we have cases where companies go with a loss must pay ekstraskatt for a theoretical superprofitt.

the Reality is the tax system downgrades allowed. It stimulates to to build out vindkraftprosjekter and småkraftprosjekter, instead of to upgrade and expand the already existing works. In the worst case, be moved investments out of the country.

corporate taxes are reduced in order to decrease the skatteforskjellen to our neighboring countries, so that Norway is an attractive country to invest in. Then it is a paradox that vannkraftbeskatningen be designed such that, in the worst case, move investments out of the country. It is silly when we need clean energy and are looking for income that lasts longer than the oil era is over.

In addition, there is a significant points that vannkraftnæringen mainly publicly owned. These surpluses go into the budgets of the state, the counties and municipalities in the form of dividend payments, and come out as grants to health - care, education and other good causes. The community is served by the fact that vannkraftverkene be renewed.

EL and IT Associated do not ask a general release. Specifically, we ask that the so-called allowance in the vannkraftbeskatningen be increased. It is targeted and will trigger more investments in vannkraftnæringen. It is our main fornybarnæring and a prerequisite for clean industry, safe electricity supply, and welfare in Norway. We must take care of the family silver.
