Detailed and reliable design of a photovoltaic (PV) power plant cannot be underestimated. In terms of energy production forecasts and legal issues concerning financing - simulation performance of the PV installation is a very important problem for both the investor and the bank. In order to simulate the performance of the PV system one has to choose proper meteorological database which would be the most reliable on the installation site. Since different meteorological databases have different measurements methods and analysis, choosing the best one is not a trivial problem. In order to find the best meteorological data source for PV simulation performance under eastern Poland conditions, PVSYST software has been used. Detailed project of an 1.39 MWp PV power plant located in Bordzilowka in the east of Poland was introduced into the software. Choosing different meteorological data bases, monthly and yearly energy production was established. The simulation results were compared with the real data obtained from the PV power plant.
