Carlsfeld lacks space for wind turbines – Dachau

Carlsfeld lacks space for wind turbines – Dachau

Municipalities are under pressure to act as a result of the “law of wind on the ground”: the federal government states that at least 1.1 percent of the region’s area must be available for wind energy by the end of 2027 and 1.8 percent by the end of 2032. In the Dachau region, municipalities have tentatively agreed to That they can imagine 948.4 hectares as wind energy areas, which is 1.6 percent of the area’s area. The municipality of Carlsfeld cannot contribute anything to that, municipal councilors said again Thursday night.

Twelve years ago, the municipality was already looking at potential sites for wind turbines and found that Carlsfeld had “a very small area and very dense development”, and those conditions have not changed in the meantime, Simone Hotzan of the Municipal Buildings Authority said. Since currently wind turbines have to be at least 1,000 meters away from residential areas, which is not possible anywhere in the community, according to Mayor Stefan Kolbe (CSU): “So we want to deal more with photovoltaic open spaces.” Alderman Adrian Haim (Carlsfeld Coalition) said it was “very unfortunate” that the community had not been able to build wind turbines and complained that expanding wind energy was taking so long. He hopes that other communities will now take action themselves.

Eight wind turbines are currently operating in the Dachau region, five near Odelzhausen, two near Dachau and one near Arduig. Pfaffenhofen an der Glonn already has concrete plans to build several wind turbines.
