The Polish company Zielona-Energia.com brings EDP "a portfolio of clients from various regions of Poland," including schools, corporate offices and agricultural spaces.

Through EDP Energia Polska, the Portuguese company has strengthened its position in the Polish distributed solar energy market with the acquisition of Zielona-Energia.com.

This step, explains the company led by Miguel Stilwell d’Andrade, “represents a milestone in EDP’s expansion strategy within the Polish photovoltaic market,” by adding to the group a company with over 58 megawatt-peak (MWp) installed in that country, of which about 7 MWp were contracted in the first half of this year alone, according to a statement released on Tuesday.

Founded in 2013, Polish Zielona-Energia.com adds to EDP “a portfolio of business customers from various regions of Poland,” including schools, corporate offices or agricultural spaces. The teams of EDP Energia Polska and Soon Energy, a recently acquired company, have already contracted about 30MWp with corporate clients since the beginning of this year.

“Solar energy will be a key lever to drive the energy transition that the EDP group is committed to leading in the 28 markets where it is present. Poland is a strategic country for this growth, where we were already developing wind projects and where, with this business segment, we intend to reach next year the mark of 100MWp of contracted solar capacity for self-consumption,” highlights Vera Pinto Pereira, EDP’s director, in a statement.

Besides acquiring Zielona-Energia.com, the statement from the Portuguese energy company revealed that EDP, via Soon Energy, will install 12MWp solar power plants at Soon Energy’s facilities in eight regions in Poland. The project is expected to be concluded in the first quarter of next year.
