#Solar could see a big boost in Poland

Poland's government is scheduled to implement a new renewable energy bill in January that could result in a significant increase in solar installation totals. Bloomberg reports that the new incentives - which would pay as much as 1.30 zloty ($0.41)/kWh for PV installations up to 100 kW until 2017- could spur the development of up to 400 MW during the next year alone. Large-scale PV plants would be eligible for tradeable renewable energy certificates. However, legislative delays could push the bill back to 2013. Poland currently has 3 MW of solar installed and no utility-scale projects, according to Bloomberg. The government is hoping to lure investor interest from neighboring Germany, which has rolled back its PV incentives.
