“Dear procrastination”

Frankfurter Rundschau

Next year’s power price increase is not the fault of wind and solar power generation operators, writes Olaf Ridder in a commentary for Frankfurter Rundschau. The rise is the price consumers have to pay for the delay in grid extensions, one of many political failures characterising the Energiewende, according to Ridder. He says an increase of 30 euros per year might be tolerable for most households, but might prove too much for many manufacturing companies.
