Polish wind sector alarm over proposed project restrictions 

If the law is passed, wind projects will be limited to locations that are at least 3 kilometers from residential properties and forest areas. The justification for the proposal reads that there are concerns that wind turbines have a negative effect on human health and that their presence causes land prices to drop.

The Polish wind power sector is concerned about a controversial proposal amending Poland’s construction law to exclude wind power installations less than 3 kilometres from homes and forested areas.

If the law is passed, wind projects will be limited to locations that are at least 3 kilometers from residential properties and forest areas.

Such a requirement would eliminate a great majority of suitable locations, according to the Polish Wind Power Association and several other lobby groups.

Despite having been tabled by opposition party Law and Justice (PiS), the proposal appears to have the support of the ruling Citizens‘ Platform (PO) party, whose leader and prime minister Donald Tusk said recently that Poland could not afford too much renewable energy.

During a recent reading in parliament, MPs from both PO and PiS voted in favour of further work on the proposal.

The justification for the proposal reads that there are concerns that wind turbines have a negative effect on human health and that their presence causes land prices to drop.
