Four photovoltaic projects of PGE Energia Odnawialna – a subsidiary of Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE) – from the Łódź, Podkarpacie, Opolskie and Podlaskie voivodeships, with a total capacity of approx. 28 MW, won the auction for the sale of electricity in renewable energy installations (RES), the company said.
The PV Wola Jedlińska, PV Lesko 2 and PV Opole projects are small installations with a capacity of up to 1 MW. PV Augustynka, in turn, is a large solar farm with a capacity of 25 MW, the release said.
PGE Energia Odnawialna obtained the best financing for PV Augustynka among all entities participating in the auction for large solar projects.
All power plants will be put into operation by the end of 2023. Modern photovoltaic modules will be used for their construction, the technical parameters of which allow for high productivity, in weather conditions typical for climatic zones in Poland. As part of the project, accompanying infrastructure related to power evacuation will be built next to the PV farms.
“This is another success of PGE Energia Odnawialna this year. In June, nineteen photovoltaic projects owned by the company won an auction for the sale of electricity in renewable energy installations up to 1 MW. When financing solar investments, we will not limit ourselves only to the support system. We also intend to build PV farms based on long-term contracts for the sale of electricity (PPA). Half a year ago, we signed on this matter, inter alia, a seven-year contract with PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna, and a few months ago we established cooperation with Raben Group “- commented Marcin Karlikowski, president of PGE Energia Odnawialna, quoted in the release.
