We need to implement a regulatory framework that offers lower energy tariffs to citizens in communities directly affected by large scale renewable energy projects

Local energy production can be slowed down by pubic acceptability. Although many people support the development of energy cooperatives, often have strong reservations about the real impact of these energy technologies at local level (wind, solar, etc.). To reduce these dilemmas, citizens impacted by the development of large scale local renewable energy initiatives (visual and noise impacts) could benefit from advantageous energy tariff by energy cooperatives. The financing of this measure could be shared between the companies and the local/regional authorities.
