    Lithuania : The number of generating electricity consumers exceeded 40 thousand

    December 6, 2022 - TendersInfo - News


      The interest in solar power plants in households is not abating, and the number of generating users in Lithuania has exceeded 40 thousand, according to the latest data of the company "Energijos skyrstymo operatorius" (ESO). The total installed capacity of generating consumers and remote generating consumers already reaches 432 MW. This would be approximately equal to the amount of electricity consumed by half of the residents of the city of Vilnius per hour.

      In 2022, ESO has already connected 16,575 producing user facilities. 15,600 objects are owned by natural persons and 975 by legal entities.

      Currently, 40,577 consumers have their own solar power plants. Currently, 31,310 residents have solar power plants installed at home, and 9,267 households generate electricity in remote parks.

      When installing solar power plants, household consumers can take advantage of state support - up to 323 euros per 1 kW. The number of manufacturing users has been growing significantly for two years in a row. For comparison, last year this number was lower - 14,281 thousand, in 2020 - 8,64 thousand.

      The solar power plant can be installed both at the place of consumption (for example, on the roof or in the plot), and a remote solar power plant can be purchased. Both natural and legal persons can become a producing user.

      The Ministry of Energy plans for the installed capacity of solar power plants to reach 1 GW by 2025.
