The first citizen power plant in the Ebersberg district is on the grid: From now on, a photovoltaic system is feeding in solar power on Markt Schwabener Flur.
Markt Schwaben - The first EBERstrom citizen power plant is in Markt Schwaben.
The open-space photovoltaic system between the train routes to Erding and Mühldorf will in future generate environmentally friendly solar power for consumers in the region, inform Bürgerenergie im Landkreis Ebersberg eG (BEG) and EBERwerk GmbH & Co. KG in a joint press release.
It says: "The construction of further plants is planned."
Markt Schwaben: First investment through citizen financing
According to the BEG, many members had participated in the public funding for the first plant in the district.
The plant produces around 1.5 million kilowatt hours of EBER electricity annually.
"In this way, around 800 tons of CO2 can be saved every year," the two companies report.
Further citizen power plants planned
EBERwerk managing director Dr.
Markus Henle speaks of a “lighthouse project”: “Our photovoltaic system shows that the 'EBERstrom' idea works.
When consumers, businesses and municipalities buy local green electricity, new solar systems are created on site.
That is real climate protection. ”Joachim Hellriegel from the board of the BEG is also pleased:“ This project is the product of a fruitful cooperation between the municipalities and citizens in the district of Ebersberg.
And hopefully the first in a series of many joint citizen power plants. "
Interested parties can make a note
BEG and EBERwerk are planning to continue their cooperation.
According to the press release, open space projects in Grafing and Ebersberg, which the EBERwerk is currently developing, come into question.
Interested citizens can make a non-binding reservation by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org or on the Internet at www.eberwerk.de/beteiligung.
The system on Markt Schwabener Flur has now been put into operation.
