Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) - Because of the feared gas bottlenecks, Baden-Württemberg supports the idea of using more energy from renewable sources. In a letter to Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Greens), Baden-Württemberg's Environment Minister Thekla Walker (Greens) advocates that more energy from photovoltaic systems can be fed into the power grids in the future. Currently, for systems with an output of up to 25 kilowatts, a maximum of 70 percent of the electricity generated may be fed into the grid - the rest must be consumed by yourself or remains unused.
"Similar to the elimination of the 70 percent cap for new systems that will apply from January 2023, this limit should also be permanently removed for existing systems," says the letter to Habeck. It makes sense for both regulations (for existing and new photovoltaic systems) to be brought forward so that they can take effect as quickly as possible, before the end of this calendar year. First, "Stuttgarter Nachrichten" and "Stuttgarter Zeitung" (Monday) reported about it.
According to the newspaper report, however, network operators are skeptical. "From our point of view, hardly anything can be gained by abolishing the 70 percent limit," a spokeswoman for Energie Baden-Württemberg (EnBW) was quoted as saying.
