Photovoltaic farm, built in MPEC along ul. Pileckiego, in summer will secure the demand for electrical equipment in heating plants.

– We already have the first results and we know that in June thanks to the solar farm, the fees for electricity consumed by the heating plant were lower by 5 thousand. zł. It also turned out that in the hours with the best sunshine we have overproduction of energy in relation to the boiler room demand. In the future, we will discharge these surpluses to the network – announced Jan Karwasiński, president of the board of MPEC in Kielce.

The investment cost slightly over 340 thousand. PLN and was fully financed from the funds of the company, which treats it as a pilot of similar activities in other MPEC facilities. The solar farm will also be used to educate about the benefits of using renewable energy in the city.

– This is a good direction for large cities, because in addition to measurable economic benefits, it is very important for environmental protection. These two installations will reduce CO2 by approximately 35,000 kilograms per year. They are also part of the trend of self-government pursuit of energy self-sufficiency of facilities belonging to the city – emphasized Bogdan Wenta, Mayor of Kielce.
