Polenergia’s solar power is growing

Polenergia’s solar power is growing

Polenergia has launched two portfolios of photovoltaic projects, Sulechów II and Sulechów III, with a capacity of 22 MWp. Thus the total capacity of green assets in operation has increased by more than 7 per cent to 318 MW. The Group is strengthening its position among the leaders actively supporting the transformation of the Polish energy market through the development of Renewable Energy Sources.

Sulechów II and Sulechów III Photovoltaic Farm Complex is Polenergia’s second and third solar project. It consists of 22 photovoltaic stations, each with a capacity of up to 1 MW. The facilities are located in Kruszyna, Sulechów Municipality, Lubusz Voivodeship. Over 40,000 photovoltaic modules have been installed on an area of 45 ha. The capacity of a single double-sided solar panel is 540 Wp. Construction lasted from June 2021 to January 2022. The projects obtained a use permit in April 2022.

The contractor for the construction works was P&Q. Contract Engineer services during project implementation were provided by Bilfinger Tebodin Polska. The domestic manufacturers’ share in the supply chain exceeded 50 per cent. 725 tonnes of steel for the superstructure, 171,000 bolts and clamps, 230 km of direct current cables, 44 km of medium and low voltage cables and 88 photovoltaic inverters were used for contract implementation.

Polenergia's strategic objective is to be an active participant in the energy transition, enabling us to develop the Group on a prospective market, increase our capacity relating to clean Renewable Energy Sources and supply electricity to an ever-increasing range of corporate and individual customers. As one of the leaders on this market, we believe that diversification of energy sources - both technological and geographical - is the basis for the energy security that is so important today. This is why we implement photovoltaic projects on an industrial scale, as it is the case in Sulechów, but also on a much smaller scale adapted to the needs of distributed prosumer energy. Importantly, we are also developing onshore and offshore wind farms, hydrogen technologies and electromobility. Because the energy industry of the future will look very different from how it looks today, and such a change requires a number of necessary modern investments and actions by all market participants involved.

Sulechów Municipality has become Polenergia’s photovoltaic valley. It was there that the company launched its first photovoltaic farm project, Sulechów I, with a capacity of 8 MWp in 2019. Now, two more projects have been built in this Municipality, bringing the total capacity of the photovoltaic farm complex in Sulechów to nearly 30 MWp. Polenergia’s solar projects could not have been implemented here without the very good cooperation with the local government.

I am happy that Sulechów Municipality has become such a favourable location for the development of renewable solar energy. The fast pace of the project is noteworthy, as less than a year ago we started two photovoltaic farm construction phases in our Municipality, and today we can already see the completion of these projects. Of course, the financial proceeds from taxes are not insignificant in this undertaking, which will directly translate into better standard of living of Sulechów residents. I would also like to emphasise the very good cooperation and communication between Polenergia and the local government. I am convinced that good relations result in the willingness to act together, which is also evidenced by Polenergia's involvement in environmental and social support in the Municipality, for which I would like to thank both the Board and the Employees.

Sulechów Photovoltaic Farm complex has received guaranteed 15-year support under the auction system. The estimated annual production of clean and green energy is almost 32 GWh, which correspond to the annual demand for electricity of as many as 16,000 households. The projects will allow avoidance of emissions of up to 27,000 tonnes of  CO2, 23 tonnes of SO2, 27 tonnes of NOX, 8 tonnes of CO and nearly 2 tonnes of particulate matter. The operation time of the facility is estimated for over 25 years, which corresponds to a cumulative production of approx. 860 GWh.

At the end of 2022, Polenergia launched another project, Buk Photovoltaic Farm. The project is located in Buk Municipality in Greater Poland Voivodeship. Buk Farm consists of 7 solar stations with a total capacity of almost 7 MWp.

Two photovoltaic projects that received support in the RES auction held in December 2021 – PV Świebodzin I and FF Strzelino with a total capacity of 56 MW – are being prepared for construction. Also ready for construction is the PV Świebodzin II project with a capacity of 10.5 MWp.
