PGE Energia Odnawialna, a company from the PGE Capital Group, has launched another photovoltaic farm. The 1-MW PV Bliskowice power plant consists of nearly 3,000 panels with a capacity of 350 W each, mounted on an area of 1.8 ha.
The solar power plant built in the Lubelskie Voivodeship together with the accompanying infrastructure related to power evacuation is one of the four PGE Energia Odnawialna projects that won last year’s auction for the sale of electricity in renewable energy installations up to 1 MW. A month ago, the company launched a PV Lesko farm in the Podkarpackie Voivodeship, and in a few weeks PV Lutol1 and PV Lutol2 in the Lubuskie Voivodeship will be opened. The PV Bliskowice photovoltaic farm, like other PGE Energia Odnawialna installations, has been equipped with monocrystalline panels. It is currently the most efficient and effective technology dominating the market. The efficiency of this type of cells is estimated at 18-20%. They can produce electricity regardless of the weather, even with low light levels, in conditions typical of climatic zones in Poland. – This is just the beginning of our photovoltaic investments. We intend to launch even more projects of this type next year and in the coming years. Some of them are small installations, which – as we believe – will win in this year’s auction for the sale of electricity in RES installations up to 1 MW. However, we are also working on large projects with a capacity of up to 100 MW, which will be built on land with an area of 100-150 ha – says Marcin Karlikowski, president of PGE Energia Odnawialna.
According to the new strategy, the PGE Capital Group intends to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. This will be achieved. by implementing investments in low and zero-emission energy sources and network infrastructure. One of the elements of the investment plan is the PV Program. According to its assumptions, within a decade, the PGE Group will build solar installations with a total capacity of up to 3 GW and strengthen its position as the leader of the RES market in Poland.
So far, over 1,600 ha of land have been secured for this purpose. It will be possible to build solar farms with a capacity of over 1,000 MW in these areas. PGE Energia Odnawialna is currently the largest producer of green energy in Poland. It has 17 wind farms, 29 hydroelectric plants, 4 pumped storage plants and 3 solar farms. The total installed capacity of all facilities is 2,324.25 MW.
