Motivating private homeowners to set up solar systems with a financial subsidy was the aim of the Greens' application in the Nandlstadt market council.

But the proposal was rejected.

Nandlstadt

– It was a renewed attempt by the GOL market councilors Erhard Schönegge and Bernd Stöckeler to further advance the sustainable energy supply in the municipality of Nandlstadt.

The aim of their latest application to the municipal council: "to motivate private homeowners to install solar systems on their roofs".

Financial support from the municipality could create the necessary incentive, she suggests.

An idea that was not so well received by the market council colleagues.

"On the part of the administration, this is viewed critically," Mayor Gerhard Betz sent ahead of the discussion.

On the one hand, the administrative effort is “very large” – you will “have difficulties in coping with it”.

What's more: "We may have problems with the administrative budget," he said, referring to the tense financial situation and referring to the "principle of thrift".

(By the way: everything from the region is now also available in our regular Freising newsletter.)

You could “achieve a lot” with balcony systems

Erhard Schönegge knows that rising electricity costs will also pose a major challenge for the municipality - and formulated a new option during the meeting: Instead of promoting solar systems on the roofs, for which an initial proposal of 500 euros per system (five kwp) and around 200 systems, a subsidy for balcony systems with 600 watts would also be conceivable.

The advantage here: The administrative effort would be manageable and you could "achieve a lot" with these small systems, the GOL market council is convinced.

“The potential in Nandlstadt could be 1000 balcony systems.

It would be nice if we set an example here.”

3. Mayor Michael Schranner (BL) emphasized: "I like the second proposal much better." Because 100,000 euros for subsidies for solar systems on the roof, as the GOL stated as a number in its application, is not in view of the finances inside: With the next budget, without this support, you will have to “cut the pencil” and “delete things from the wish list”.

PV system wanted in the kindergarten

Alexander Mörwald (UWN) found the application "fundamentally good" and advocated "taking responsibility as a municipality" and "not shifting the topic of energy transition to the federal and state governments".

Martin Forster (CSU) called "all of this very commendable", but criticized this approach as the "watering can principle" and therefore not very effective.

He advocated exploiting other possibilities - such as the construction of a PV system on the roof of the Johannes kindergarten.

"It's the perfect location, but it won't be done." Mörwald also sees another possibility in the kindergarten, but "everything else is structurally unsuitable".

Stöckeler sees it differently.

He is convinced that Nandlstadt's capacities are "not yet exhausted": For example, he "presented a solution for the roof area on the building yard, but it was swept off the table by the head of the building authority".

With a view to the application, Andreas Selmayer (CSU) finally said: "The profitability contradicts the funding." Apparently many market councilors saw it that way.

The application was rejected - only Schönegge, Stöckeler, Mörwald and Robert Urbaneck (UWN) voted in favor.
