Sunly Launches 60 MW Solar Park Near Krakow After Investing 33 Million Euros
6th of September marked the launch of the 60 MW Rzezawa solar park near Krakow, following a 33-million-euro investment. As one of Poland’s largest solar parks, it represents Sunly’s most significant endeavor in the country to date.
In August, the electricity generated by Rzezawa accounted for 43% of the total forecasted electricity output of all Sunly’s solar parks in Poland. Built on 50 hectares, the park in Rzezawa has a capacity of 60 MW and an annual average energy yield of 65,000 MWh. The park is able to cover the annual energy needs of a city with 80,000 inhabitants – supplying approx. 30,000 households, as well as urban infrastructure. Sunly has ambitious plans to develop a portfolio of more than 30 GW of renewable energy projects in the Baltic States and Poland.
Priit Lepasepp, founder and CEO of Sunly explained that Rzezawa is only the beginning of what Sunly is planning to achieve in Poland. “We see Poland as a very attractive market with great potential to grow in the future. Together with the local team who recognises the opportunities, we can increase the clean energy production in the region within upcoming years,” said Lepasepp.
“Rzezawa solar parks is not just a field of panels, it is a field of possibilities for utilities, municipalities and corporations to adopt renewable energy. This means that Rzezawa solar park can help organisations to meet their environmental and economic goals by selling electricity directly from the solar park,” added Rafał Darski, Sunly Managing Director in Poland.
The Rzezawa solar farm project was carried out by a renewable energy producer and developer—Sunly together with Alseva Group who Sunly acquired a year ago. Alseva Group is one of Poland’s largest solar power development and construction companies who took care of the project realisation. While Alseva PRO managed the development phase, the construction responsibilities fell to Alseva EPC. Commencing in early 2021, the project reached full operational status in the summer of 2023.
