The number and capacity of household power plants has been growing constantly, with solar panel systems driving the industry, the Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority (MEKH) said on Friday.

Solar-driven power plants produced 164.08 MWs last year, 99.17 percent of the total capacity.
