Mitigation and compensation measures
When it comes to mitigation and compensation measures, realised through the construction of wind and solar farms, VSB works together with local authorities and residents to find the right solution for the local site. With these measures, which enrich the landscape and provide added value in environmental terms for flora and fauna, we often go beyond legal minimum requirements. One example is the mitigation and compensation measures as a result of the Wölkisch wind farm in Saxony:
- Dismantling of the old riding hall,
- establishing meadow orchards and a fruit tree avenue along the ‘Obstblütenradweges’ (Fruit blossom cycle route) and
- establishing the ‘Schutzackers Schwochau’ protective area near Lommatzsch in cooperation with the Landesverein Sächsischer Heimatschutz e.V.
