New Gralewo Photovoltaic Plant Saves 2,5 tonnes of CO2 daily
First stage of large-scale solar project by Sun Investment Group is up and running in Gralewo, Poland.
The solar power plant in Gralewo is the first of 43 similar facilities that are to be constructed by the end of Q2 of 2019 by Sun Investment Group in partnership with energy group E-Energija and solar photovoltaic construction company I+D Energias.
Solar energy produced in the new photovoltaic plant in Gralewo delivers energy to the national energy system daily, actively contributing to the improvement of air quality in Poland. Solar panels, which cover 2.1826 hectares of land in Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodship, with its peak power of 998,47 MW, are expected to provide annual energy output at the level of 1040 MWh and to save 920 tonnes of CO2 per year.
The whole project portfolio, with its cumulative power of 42,36 MWp, will approximately account for 15% of the country's total solar market. It will become an important part of Poland’s commitment of increasing its renewable energy production, contributing to the vital part of national energy security system.
For this investment, Sun Investment Group decided to use 3,696 pieces of Jinko solar modules, inverters by Sungrow and transformer station produced by ELQ S.A. Construction of the plant took 4 weeks. The farm, connected to the electricity grid operated by Energa, is a part of Polish national energy system providing it with ca. 3 MWh of electricity every day. It is the amount of energy that an average Polish household would use over a period of 1,5 years or would equate to streaming of 6 hours of TV a day for over 27 years.
