EDF Energies Nouvelles SA, the clean-energy arm of Electricite de France SA, started its first wind farm in Poland.
The 48-megawatt facility in the northern Grudziadz region comprises 24 turbines supplied by Vestas Wind Systems A/S, the Paris-based company said today in a statement on its website.
Poland has a goal to get 15 percent of its energy from clean sources by 2020, compared with about 2 percent now. The target includes 6,000 megawatts of wind power, EDF said. At the end of 2011 it had 1,616 megawatts of wind, according to the European Wind Energy Association.
