Robert Velkey 2017.08.14.

The number and capacity of household power plants has been growing constantly, with solar panel systems driving the industry, the Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority (MEKH) said.

In the year 2016, 20,496 household-scale power plants were connected to the national power grid, a growth of 35% from the previous year, it said. The total capacity amounted to 165.5 MW by the end of the year. The capacity of most household power plants is below 5 MWs.

Solar-driven power plants produced 164.08 MWs last year, 99.17% of the total capacity.
