Steinigtwolmsdorf. The municipality of Neukirch has a electricity petrol station in front of the town hall and since this year has been a second one in addition to the newly opened Lidl . Also in Sohland, owners of e-cars can refuel their vehicle in front of the town hall with electricity . Steinigtwolmsdorf wanted to do it equal to its neighboring communities and install a charging station for electrically operated cars in the center of town.

Kaufland and Lidl End Free Loading of E-cars

 Kaufland and Lidl End Free Loading of E-cars as e-cars on German roads still rarity, retail often attracted free charging options in parking spaces.

"The decisive argument, on the other hand, was the costs that would have been affected by the community," explains Mayor Kathrin Gessel (CDU). The operation of a electricity petrol station is only profitable for the operator, it explains if there are at least three charging processes per day. The municipal council does not currently see this as given and has therefore rejected the project for the time being. "But we don't want to lose sight of it and vote on it again next year," says Gesel.

around 12,000 euros had to be invested for such a station, 7,000 euros of this could receive the municipality as funding, Gessel calculates. However, the local council did not consider the more than 400 euros in fees per month to be at the moment, in his opinion the money should be invested better elsewhere.

The charging station should be set up on the market. In the discussion, a location at the Steingwolmsdorfer Wasserwelt was brought into play. "This was rejected because the period of use at the outdoor pool would be limited to the summer months," explains the mayor. According to the Federal Network Agency,

in Saxony is currently 2,180 normal charging points and 495 quick load points that differ from the maximum possible charging capacity. Three years ago, it was only about 700 charging points across Saxony. (SZ/BSP)
