TAURON Polska Energia S.A., previously called Energetyka Południe S.A., was established on 6 December 2006 in connection with the implementation of the “Program for the Energy Sector” adopted by the Council of Ministers. The program involved establishment of four large business entities that would consolidate both distributors and producers of energy. The goal of the consolidation was to create entities that would be strong enough to effectively compete with other European companies in the free energy market.
