The farm was created on areas reclaimed from a former lignite mine in Przykona near Turek (192 km west of Warsaw) in the Wielkopolskie province, Polish Press Agency (PAP) and Polandin.com, among others, report.

Energa says it sees the potential of building a total of 150 MW in capacities at the location, CEO Jacek Goliński said. The first investment to follow could be a 20 MW photovoltaic (PV) installation, he added.
