Poland’s “My Electricity” programme

Last updated: 21 August 2023

The "My Electricity" programme in Poland is a nationwide project aimed at increasing the share of distributed solar PV in the production of electricity, with funding from the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management. The support includes subsidies for PV installations targeted at households to cover own electricity needs (with capacity between 2 and 10 kW). Beneficiaries receive a non-refundable subsidy covering up to 50% of eligible investment costs, up to PLN 5 000 (EUR 1 100). The subsidy can be used to pay for devices such as PV panels and inverters, cables, as well as for solar panel installation. In its second round, the programme’s budget amounts to PLN 1.1 billion (EUR 243 million) and will contribute to the installation of around 220 000 solar panels. In the third round of the programme (2021-2023) beneficiaries receive a non-refundable subsidy of up to PLN 3 000 (EUR 649); the programme’s budget amounts to over PLN 500 million (EUR 109 million). Combined with the available tax deductions, the subsidy under the “My Electricity” programme is expected to shorten the payback period on the installation of PV panels from 12 to 8 years (while the panels’ lifetime is currently estimated at 25 years).
