President LR of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region wants to set stricter rules for wind power projects under the SRADDET, the regional scheme for development, sustainable development and territorial equality.

This is a statement of intent that will delight opponents mobilized against wind projects in Drôme and Ardèche.

" 

The regional president's efforts have been interrupted by the socialist deputy Ardèche Hervé Saulignac. The latter was worried about the plan to increase wind power generation by 400% in the new scheme. The elected ardéchois estimated in a mail dated March 14 that these orientations would disfigure the department. With 21 parks and 94 wind turbines, the Ardèche is already the largest contributor of wind power in this area with a 31% share.
