“Two thirds of tenants want locally produced power”


Most German tenants would like to receive their electricity from local sources, renewable energy provider LichtBlick said in a press release. According to LichtBlick’s survey conducted by pollster YouGov, 66 percent of tenants can see themselves using locally produced power while only one in six would not use so-called “tenant electricity” schemes. However, according to the survey there are no pv installations or district heating stations available in 82 percent of rented flats in Germany. These are necessary to produce green power locally.
