“Companies complain to Merkel about grid costs”
Eighty-six companies and business associations from Germany’s North, East, and South have complained to Chancellor Angela Merkel about “unfair” grid fees, reports Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. They argue in a letter that grid fees must be the same all over the country, instead of being higher in regions with strong renewable production. The government cabinet was set to approve a new law on grid fees on Wednesday.
