According to Polish utility Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE) the total capacity of photovoltaic installations in Poland increased by 131,6 MW in the first quarter of this year and amounted to 603 MW at the end of March 2019. Last year, PSE recorded photovoltaic systems operating with a total capacity of 471,4 MW, says the non-governmental renewable energy association Stowarzyszenie Energii Odnawialnej (SEO).
In the current quarter, the pace of photovoltaic investments should sustain the connections of the last PV power plants of unit capacity up to 1 MW, which were covered by guarantees of sale of electricity at the prices offered in the second auction at the end of June 2017. The Ministry of Energy announces that it will hold further auctions for photovoltaic and wind projects with a unit capacity of up to 1 MW, which should be again dominated by investors planning to build photovoltaic power plants.
In February, Entrepreneurship and Technology Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz says she expects »that solar panels with total capacity of 200 MW will be installed in 2019,« and »around 200 MW in solar panels per year to be added in coming years.«
