<ul><li>The investment is carried out by the company "Energy Wierzchoslawice" Sp. z o. o. in Wierzchosławice. The idea of renewable energy sources in the Municipality Wierzchoslawice came from Mayor Wiesław Rajski. For several years research and identification of possible use in our area the potential of renewable energy sourceshasbeencarried out. We want to becometheenvironmentalfriendlyand modernmunicipality.
TheCompany "Energy Wierzchoslawice" also has a license for geothermal borehole in the village BobrownikiSmall -depth 3600 m,in order to carry out the construction of a "system of exploitation of geothermal waters in Municipality Wierzchoslawice". </li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Geothermal waters are to be used to generate heat for the city of Tarnow. It’s possible to obtain a power of 4.65 MW of thermal power. Thermal waters can also be used forheating tunnels horticultural, fish farming or recreational purposes balneo-in the form of thermal pools ("Baths Wierzchoslawice")</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Construction of solarpower plant 1.8 MWpin Wierzchosławice - Stage I is the first in Poland to build industrial photovoltaic farms with total capacity of 1.8 MWp- Phase I applies to power 1.0 MWp.

Panels attached to the base permanently (as is clear from the photos) areconnected to a network of 15 kV.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>From 1MWpper yearon investment can be achieved revenues of approximately 600-800 thousandPLNannually, depending on the weather. We estimate that the investment will return to us after about 7 years.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Electricity in Poland is becoming more expensive which will benefit everyone in the electricity bill. It is expected that due to restrictions imposed by the EU until 2020 we will have 15% of electricity produced from Renewable Energy Sources.
However, the lack of appropriate legal requirements and subsidies makes photovoltaics in Poland not developping, and similar projects have no chance of success.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>We hope that the rules will change in Poland, and the new regulations will enable the rapid construction and the ability to connect to a network of small farms of photovoltaic (energy dissipated).</li></ul>Wierzchosławice<br />Commune<br /><ul><li>We hope that our project will be a positive signal and initiate the development of photovoltaics in our country, and Poland will soon join countries such as Germany and the Czech Republic - wherephotovoltaic develops.</li></li></ul><li>
