They have kept their word. A good five months after the foundation of friedrich-wilhelm-raiffeisen-energie-munnerstadt eg, a photovoltaic system has been installed on the roof of a shed on norbert schreiner's farm. It will be connected to the grid next week. Now the board of directors, supervisory board and members hope that the sun will finally shine. "We have signed a contract with johannes schreiner for 20 years, plus five years", explained chairman of the board franz wust. The feed-in tariff is fixed for 20 years. And by the way, the facility saves 110 tons of carbon dioxide per year.
It was financed 20 percent from own funds and 80 percent from a long-term loan. The shares that the members bought when they joined the cooperative were enough for the cooperative's share. "It gets really interesting with the excavated earth landfill, then we need loans from the members", said gunter koth. And that brings him to the next project of the energy cooperative. An open-air installation is planned on the land of the former excavated earth landfill near the freeway feeder road.
Part of the flat lies on the municipal area of burglauer. The plant is expected to have an output of over 1400 kilowatts and produce around 1.5 million kilowatt hours per year. That is enough for around 500 households. The investment costs will amount to about 1.3 million euros. The members can then participate directly in this through loans. Photovoltaic systems are also planned for the roofs of the munnerstadt kindergarten and the youth center.
The cooperative has not lost sight of wind power. Even then there have been many activities and speeches. However, no projects are currently up for decision.
From april, the cooperative's office will be located on the top floor of the VR bank in veit-stob-strabe. For members and other interested parties is open every friday from 10 to 11 o'clock. The board members are grateful to the city and its mayor for the provision of a room in the town hall so far.
The new "schreiner" facility will be held on saturday, 6. April, from 10 a.M. To 12 p.M. To interested guests.
