The Norwegian prime minister's electricity bill

Jens Stoltenberg, the prime minister of Norway, spent NOK 400,000 (USD 67,000) on electricity for his residence during the last year reports e24.no. Not bad for a socialist prime minister (leader of the Norwegian Labour Party) advocating equality, fair distribution of wealth, reducing energy consumption and reducing pollution and CO2 emissions (it's all here - only in Norwegian unfortunately). Never heard about anyone in the Norwegian Labour government complaining about this carbon footprint. The house, including electricity, fully paid for by the taxpayer naturally, with 670 square meters of living space, initially had a budgeted cost of NOK 254 million (USD 42.33 million) back in 2004 for the house to be ready for the prime minister to move into in 2008.
