Their goal is to avoid a permanent cessation of power certainly old, but still profitable. To achieve this goal, they threaten not to pay a penny too "Development Fund for Renewable Energy" introduced in exchange for extending the life of plants.

"We do cotisons for reactors that work," said one of their leaders. A position that does not fit at all with Merkel government. In addition it constitutes a "breach of contract", it represents a shortfall of 27 million euros within three months.
