Over the past few years Kisielice (or Freystadt as it was known in former West-Prussia) has undertaken determined steps to become independent from the national electricity grid. And succeeded. Most electricity comes from 52 wind turbines, total capacity 94,5MW. Furthermore a central heating network was built around a 6 MW biomass boiler plant, fueled by locally harvested straw. Kisielice is still an early bird in Poland, which still uses coal for 90% of its electricity generation, but as the saying goes: “once one, come all“”.
