Concern over grid fees structure
The Lower Rhine Chamber of Industry and Commerce has warned against planned legislation to standardise electricity grid fees across the country, the Rheinische Post reports. The organisation, which represents business interests in the region appealed to to North Rhine-Westphalia’s state premier Hannelore Kraft (Social Democrats) to speak out against a draft bill aimed at modernising the structure of grid fees. It says the law would put an increased financial burden of 500 million euros on local industry, damaging its competitiveness.
