Polish grid operator, Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE) says the country reached 1.83 GW of solar installations last month.
PSE on Monday announced the total solar capacity of the nation rose 8.1% in March and April, with 236.2 MW of new systems installed.

The grid operator had reported 1.29 GW of solar in Poland at the end of the year, up from around 1 GW in late September, and from just 486 MW at the end of 2018.
Last year’s strong growth was mainly driven by incentives for rooftop PV and the extension of net metering access to businesses. The Polish government commissions commercial and industrial PV and large scale solar through renewable energy auctions.
