  • Clarification of all planning issues relating to the project site
  • Extensive investigations on questions of nature conservation, noise, shadow and much more in close cooperation with the approval authorities and other relevant groups and organisations
  • Creation and continuous optimisation of the wind farm layout
  • Detailed implementation planning for installing wind turbines and building the infrastructure

The BayWa r.e. citizen electricity tariff

Exclusively for local residents to BayWa r.e. AG wind farms in Germany 

In the future, BayWa r.e. will offer discounted electricity tariffs for residents of its wind farms in Germany from the time of commissioning. The offer applies to all our wind farms that are commissioned from October 31, 2023. 

Specifically, citizens residing within a radius of 2,500 meters of the respective wind farm will be offered an electricity tariff that is 10% below the local basic utility tariff, both in terms of the basic price and for 5,000 kWh per year in terms of the working price.

In the context of the energy transition, active cooperation with communities is an important step that must not be overlooked. That's why it's so important for us to involve citizens in our projects right from the start and, of course, to let them benefit, for example, with affordable and clean electricity from renewable sources. After all, it's not just our planet and the climate that should benefit from renewable energy, but local residents as well.

Matthias Taft, Chairman of the Board of Management of BayWa r.e. AG

It is possible to offer such a tariff because BayWa r.e. operates the plants it develops itself as an IPP ("Independent Power Producer") and is one of only a few project development companies in Germany that also trades the electricity produced by these plants itself. It is not planned to limit the tariff to a few years, but rather to offer the discounted electricity for the entire operating lifetime of the wind farms.

The discounted tariff will be offered exclusively within a radius of 2,500 meters, which is oriented on the regulation for municipal participation pursuant to Section 6 of the German Renewable Energy Act (EEG).
