Armed to the energy turnaround: last Chance for Taunus wind

in The beginning there was a consensus. Eight years ago, Wiesbaden, Taunusstein had, the Wiesbaden-based Eswe and the use of the land is agreed to by Hessen-Forst on a common approach to investigate the Potential of the Taunuskamms for the use of wind energy and to explore the best locations for rotors. Initially it was said that possible locations for wind turbines should only be developed jointly, with the state of Hesse wanted to restrict forestry on the role of the surface lessor.

in the same year, Taunusstein was a survey conducted in order. After that, two-thirds of the citizens in Wiesbaden and Taunusstein the Energiewende thought was right, and 74 percent of the Taunus Steiner and 57 per cent of the Wiesbaden looked at wind energy as a suitable to realize the energy transition. More than half of the Taunus Steiner citizen could imagine wind turbines in the immediate vicinity of the place of residence.

back Then, up to three wind farms, each with ten rotors in the border area between the two municipalities in the discussion. The former Taunus Steiner, mayor Michael Hofnagel (CDU) reasoned public about the commissioning of the first plants until the end of 2014. However, the Protest quickly became stronger, and the political Wind turned. Citizens ' initiatives were formed, the Taunus Steiner CDU positioned itself clearly with your group chief and later mayor, Sandro tens unexpectedly against the project and won the FDP and FWG for this Position. In the spring of 2013, the Taunus Steiner city refused to prescribed to the wind turbines, thanks to two dissenters from the ranks of the SPD circuit. The Taunus ridge was henceforth regarded as a more desirable green space to protect. Thus, the planned participation in the specially created Eswe, a subsidiary of Taunus wind GmbH waste was.

municipality wishes to allow wind power plants

support for Taunus stone came from Niedernhausen. The community representatives objected to the use of wind power on the Taunus ridge and confirmed by the CDU and the SPD introduced a resolution: "The municipality is on their own, on the Taunus ridge forest no construction of wind power surfaces and equipment."

To the allegation of prevention planning to suspend, brought in Taunusstein, a new part of the land use plan, which will focus on the use of wind power on first of all undefined areas and the rest of the city territory, together with Taunus, the ridge of the rotors are free to keep.

Wiesbaden had focused on the "High root" as a single site for the estimated 55-million-Euro wind Park. Ten wind turbines of the type Enercon E-115 should deliver annually about 85,000 megawatt-hours of electricity. Mathematically, enough for 22,000 Three-person households.
