PGE Energia Odnawialna, a company belonging to the PGE Capital Group, has leased nearly 320 hectares of land from the Diocese of Zielona Gora and Gorzow. By the end of 2023, photovoltaic installations with a total capacity of approximately 250 MW will be built there.
PGE Energia Odnawialna has leased land in the Lubuskie voivodship in two locations. Over 267 ha is located in the Slubice commune, and almost 52 ha in Wilenko and Myszecin. Importantly, the acquired land is located in close proximity to high-voltage infrastructure, enabling connection to the power grid. Additionally, thanks to the favorable location and terrain, it can be expected that the photovoltaic farms built there will be characterized by high productivity.
– This is the largest lease contract we have signed as part of the PV Program implemented in the PGE Group. Its goal is to launch up to 3 GW of capacity in solar installations within a decade and strengthen the position of the leader in the OZE market in the country. So far, we have secured more than 2,000 ha of land for this purpose, on which it will be possible to build PV farms with a total capacity of over 1,250 MW – says Marcin Karlikowski, president of PGE Energia Odnawialna.
In addition to large projects, similar to those implemented on the lands of the Diocese of Zielona Gora and Gorzow, the company will invest also in smaller, one-megawatt installations, similar to the solar farms that are just being commissioned: PV Lutol 1 and PV Lutol 2.
PGE Energia Odnawialna is currently the largest producer of green energy in Poland. It has 17 wind farms, 29 hydroelectric power plants, 4 pumped storage power plants and 5 photovoltaic farms. The total installed capacity of all facilities is 2,326.25 MW.
