Quotes are anticipated from 5 February, while last orders will be signed "right after", according to a declaration from the firm. The tender will certainly cover a range of parts such as monofacial module dimensions in between 350MWp and 500MWp, full-black modules for rooftop solar installations, as well as bifacials for solar farm projects.

It is really hoped the tender, which will be supervised by Energia's solar subsidiary Menlo Electric, will certainly safeguard modules for all companies within the team by the 2nd half of this year. Marta Walendzewicz, chief financial officer of Menlo Electric, stated that handing procurement and also logistics obligations over to the subsidiary would certainly make it possible for the group to take advantage of economic climate of scale, "handle our exposure to changing currency exchange rate and logistics costs".

Kamil Sankowski, Edison Energia's chief industrial police officer, said he really hopes the utility will "spearhead" Poland's own power change, which has actually grabbed pace in current months. Renewables designer BayWa r.e. broke ground on the nation's biggest solar farm last summer --- a 64.6 MWp project in Witnica-- and also safeguarded a power purchase arrangement (PPA) with construction group HiedelbergCement for the plant last month. Poland's Institute of Renewable Energy (IEO) has claimed that up to 8GW of solar capability could be set up in the country in the next 5 years, and developers were awarded all available capacity in a Polish public auction for small-scale tidy power projects at the end of 2020.

Sankowski included that Edison Energia released a new line of products to provide "top quality installments to more price-sensitive customers" last month, which will require a varied module portfolio. Bartosz Majewski, Edison Energia's principal running officer, claimed the team's solar farms were the very first in Poland to adopt Chinese supplier JinkoSolar's Tiger Pro bifacial modules.

Last month another supplier, LONGi, authorized an offer to offer 300MW of high-efficiency solar modules to Polish circulation company Keno.
