Starting from 1st July, Poland is launching the "My Wind Turbine" programme, which provides a government subsidy of 30,000 zloty (over €6,900) for the purchase and installation of home wind turbines that generate electricity. According to Wprost, owners of single-family homes and small farms can apply for the subsidy.

To receive funding for the installation of a private wind turbine, applicants must meet specific criteria. This includes having the necessary technical conditions for installing a wind turbine and registering the installation with the appropriate technical oversight authorities.

The Polish government states that the goal of the "My Wind Turbine" programme is to support the development of green energy, reduce CO2 emissions, and offer households protection against rising electricity prices. Government officials say that by using self-generated electricity, residents of private households and farmers can significantly reduce their utility bills. However, experts note that this savings could be offset by maintenance costs of the turbines, which are not covered by the government subsidies.

Polish officials also hope that the widespread installation of private wind turbines will enhance Poland's energy security and independence. This approach is being adopted in various countries. For instance, Ukraine is also preparing a government financial support programme for the installation of home wind turbines and solar panels by private individuals, as announced by the government at the beginning of summer.

The publication The Gaze also reported that the proliferation of solar panels has led to a drop in electricity prices in Germany. Last year's surge in solar panel installations caused a price collapse as supply significantly exceeded demand. Although by the end of 2023, the total capacity of solar panels in the country exceeded 81.7 gigawatts, the demand reached only 52.2 gigawatts.
