Wind power is a minor but growing source of electricity in Poland. As of the end of 2013, 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.[1]

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.
