Polish utility company Tauron is launching a 6 megawatts (MW) solar power plant (Choszczno I) in northwest Poland, with a plan to expand it by 4 MW in the near future.
Wojciech Ignacok, President of the Management Board of Tauron, announced that the solar farm will begin operating from the fourth quarter of 2020 until 2045. He reminded that the Choszczno farm is the first Tauron’s solar plant and, by 2025, the company is planning further investments in this field up to 300 MW of solar farms.
The investment is in line with Tauron’s Green Returns initiative, which aims at increasing the share of renewable energy sources (RES) in the Group’s energy mix to over 65 per cent in 2030 while reducing emissions by 50 per cent.
Furthermore, the company wants to commission 900 MW of wind project capacity over the next five years.
