To promote photovoltaic systems, the Free State of Bavaria has advertised the first areas on state roofs for private investors to lease. "We are using every opportunity to equip many more roofs with photovoltaic systems in the near future. We are now tendering 66," said Minister of Construction and Transport Christian Bernreiter (CSU) on Wednesday in Munich. In addition, the state government is providing 125 million euros for the construction of systems on other roofs.
The aim is to set up photovoltaic systems on all suitable properties, it said. According to a calculation by the Ministry of Building, around 1300 of the approximately 11,000 roofs on state buildings in Bavaria are suitable for photovoltaic systems. The Greens subsequently criticized that this number was far too low and that systems for generating solar power could be installed on significantly more roofs.
The construction of photovoltaic systems is part of the state government's energy strategy. Bavaria wants to double the production of renewable energies by 2030, and even triple photovoltaics. "Every scrap" of renewable energy should be used. "Renewable energies mean more self-sufficiency," emphasized Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) when presenting the strategy.
