At the end of last year, Poland’s operational PV capacity stood at around 486 MW, with 214 MW deployed that year, says pv-magazine.

That means most of the current operational capacity – around 620 MW – was installed in the first nine months of this year. The Polish government expects total capacity to reach 1.3 GW (gigawatt) this year, pv-magazine says.
