The expansion of wind power is currently paralyzing. One reason for this is resistance from residents to wind farms. Union politicians had called for the 1000-meter rule to increase acceptance. There is, however, a dispute between the SPD and the Union about the design – the question was, for example, where exactly the 1000 meter distance should be kept, for example when there are only a few houses standing together. The countries should now be allowed to decide on this.
SPD circles said on Tuesday evening to Altmaier’s template: “This comes very close to our proposal.” It is important that possible distance rules of the countries do not endanger the achievement of the common 65 percent goal.
The coalition groups have been negotiating the expansion of green electricity for many months. In the meantime, country representatives have also been involved. At a federal-state meeting planned for March 12, Altmaier said that there should be a “concrete result” if possible.
