AbstractCurrently built PV power plants are included in the national energy system, giving the opportunity to “store” energy in this system, provided that they are power plants with pico power or below 40 kWp. The concept of storage refers to the fact that excess energy is put into the energy system, and in the later period we can take from the grid less than 80% of what was given depending on the age of installed power of the PV plant. The operation of the power plant is settled on a semi-annual basis. The purpose of the work was to develop a simple methodology to determine the efficiency of energy use generated from a photovoltaic micro electric plant for the needs of users of prosumer installations. The research was carried out in a vegetable farm located in the Kazimierza Wielka poviat on three independent photovoltaic installations, which were used to cover the energy needs of the household and vegetable store, respectively. Regardless of the oversizing of the PV installation on the DC voltage side, the operating point is very rigidly maintained, and its changes are in the range of 747 ÷ 760 V DC of direct voltage, which is unfavorable. Oversizing the PV installation on the DC side results in a proportional increase in unit costs without the effect of an increase in the unit efficiency of the electricity produced.
