The planned p44/p44mod alternating current lines. Continued to stumble on rough resistance. During a meeting with thomas bareib, parliamentary secretary of state in the federal ministry of economics, a delegation from the counties of coburg, schweinfurt, bad kissingen and habberge once again made clear their opposition to these power lines. This is stated in a press release issued by all participants.
At the meeting in berlin, besides the members of the federal parliament hans michelbach (coburg/kronach) and anja weisgerber (schweinfurt), the representatives of the counties, cities and municipalities were deputy district administrator christian gunsenheimer, deputy chairman of the coburg municipal association tobias ehrlicher, deputy district administrator christine bender (schweinfurt), district administrator wilhelm schneider (habberge), mayor ulrich werner (bergrheinfeld) and head of department thomas schoenwald (district office bad kissingen). At the meeting at the federal ministry of economics, gunsenheimer, ehrlicher and michelbach made it clear to the new secretary of state for energy issues that the coburg demands are clear in content, and that the people in the region are more than willing to protest further.
While michelbach pointed out the insanity of rising electricity prices due to grid expansion, especially at the expense of the coburg economy, gunsenheimer and ehrlicher once again referred to the high burden on the coburg region caused by the transportation projects of german unification and the "thuringer strombrucke" already built and the missing economic and scientifically provable basis for the power line P44/p44mod. Questions could not be answered by the federal network agency, mostly with the indication that the federal government’s political guidelines do not allow it. The delegation rejected a transfer station within upper franconia, as this would lead to a division within the region. That is why they will also participate in the meeting with the delegation from kronach at the beginning of september.
It became exciting when the secretary of state of the ministry of economics came to talk about the alternative: "for sure one or the other route will be omitted when the expansion of wind power in the south of germany will pick up speed. But with bavaria’s so-called 10-H regulation, this burden was placed solely on baden-wurttemberg – so the bavarians have to get moving."
At the end, bareib agreed to visit the region of coburg to see for himself the situation of the rough burden presented by the infrastructure projects. The delegation was happy to invite him.
