The gorvernment in Poland prepared green energy bills
In Poland, 90% of the electricity is produced from conventional sources, coal to be specific. Still, the country is looking forward to grow the green energy level by 15% by 2020 in order to respect the European Union’s targets.
The parliament in Poland and its president needs to decide on the new draft law.
Solar energy bills to be introduced in Poland
The country’s government decided to agree on a bill during this week, a bill regarding green energy projects that have the purpose to help reach the European Union climate targets and bring electricity costs for consumers down.
If the parliament and Bronisław Komorowski, the country’s president, accept the law, it means that planners and holders of recently developed renewable installations can sell the produced electricity at sell-offs for a formerly announced price that will not change for 15 years as a Reuters report says.
Green energy power developers that are already in the business have the freedom to preserve their subsidies or choose to join the auctions.
The new voted laws have been discussed by the government for two years now
The European country produces almost 100% of the electric power from coal and it’s obliged to bring up the level of clean energy to at least 15% of the total until 2020 to be in line with Eu regulations on carbon emissions.
Green energy supporters have been criticizing Poland’s foggy legal environment that has been standing in the way of new investments and preventing a major development in renewable projects.
The country’s former subsidy program did not supply long-term guarantees. European governments have been reducing subsidies and the European Commission this week announced new guidelines, that will be valid starting from July and market-based initiatives will be replacing renewable energy subsidies.
