Lithuanian energy company Ignitis Renewables announced on Friday (15 March) that its Silesia I wind farm in Poland has reached the start of commercial operation.

“We are strongly committed to our purpose to create a 100 per cent green and secure energy ecosystem for current and future generations in our region. This is why we are investing more than ever in renewable energy projects in the Baltics and Poland,” said Darius Maikštėnas, CEO of Ignitis Group.

The project is located in the Lower Silesian Voivodeship (southwestern Poland), near the border with Czechia. It consists of 14 wind turbines with a capacity of 3.6 megawatts (MW) each. The 50 MW park is estimated to generate around 122 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of clean renewable energy per year, enough to power around 30,000 households in Poland.

With the start of commercial operation of the Silesia I wind farm, the total installed capacity of Ignitis Group’s green generation gas reached 1.4 GW (up from 1.3 GW). The total investment in this project is around 75 million euros.

The electricity generated by the wind farm will be sold through contract for difference (CfD) contracts, Ignitis Renewables noted in a press release.
