Wind power is a minor but growing source of electricity in Poland. As of the end of 2013[update], total installed capacity was 3,390 megawatts (MWe), which provided 5,822 gigawatt-hours (GW·h) — 3.53% of the electricity produced in the country. The energy production sources are registered by the state Office of Control of Electricity.
From 2012 to 2014 the Nowy Tomyśl Wind Turbines were the tallest wind turbines in the world with a pinnacle height of 210 metres. They are still the tallest wind turbines installed on lattice towers.
