Windmill scandal. Finally, the author of the controversial recipe was revealed

Paulina Hennig-Kloska admitted that it was she who introduced the provisions in the bill that allow wind turbines to be built within 300 meters of buildings.

A group of MPs from Poland 2050 and KO submitted to the Sejm a draft amendment to the Law on Support for Energy Consumers, which proposes, among other things: restoring the stock exchange obligation, as well as liberalizing the rules for the construction of wind farms on country.

It is the regulations surrounding wind farms that are the most controversial, because the members of the new parliamentary majority propose in their project to reduce the required distances from residential buildings to 300 meters in the case of multi-family homes and 400 meters in the case of single-family homes .

The solutions are sharply criticized by PiS politicians, who argue that the act in this form could lead to the expropriation of people for wind farms. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki stated that Donald Tusk’s government has not yet been formed and that the first scandal – the windmill scandal – has already occurred. He added that Poland would lose from the proposed regulations and lobbyists would gain.

Windmill scandal. Hennig-Kloska confessed

The face of the bill on freezing energy prices, which contains controversial provisions, is Paulina Hennig-Kloska, MP of Szymon Hołownia’s Poland 2050. – The original initiator of the project is the Civic Platform – Hennig-Kloska argued on TVN24. She noted that the draft of the new law had been consulted with individual opposition clubs.

As the MP admitted, the bill also contains provisions on “small and large” wind turbines. She added that it was she who introduced the change that allowed the construction of “small” buildings at a distance of about 300 meters from the buildings.

– So the original design included 500 meters for large and small wind turbines. Why did you change it? – asked Katarzyna Kolenda-Zaleska, the presenter of the program. Hennig-Kloska responded that it happened “after discussions with experts.” However, she did not say whether they were lobbyists.

Current regulations provide for the possibility of building wind turbines at a minimum distance of 700 meters from residential buildings. There are also minimum distances between wind turbines and electricity transmission lines. The law prohibits the construction of wind turbines in national parks, nature reserves, landscape parks and Natura 2000 areas.
