A Turkish solar firm has announced the installation of the nation’s first grid-connected PV power plant.
IBC Solar Yat Ve Tic, IBC Solar AG’s Turkish subsidiary, built the plant in the city of Konya, which is expected to generate around 300,000 kWh of energy every year and cut 215 tons of carbon emissions.
Hayri Bali, General Manager of IBC SOLAR Turkey said: “We considered the importance of this unique project for all of Turkey regarding the clean and environmentally friendly energy production generated via photovoltaic technology.”
He added the Konya project will set a ”positive example” for the Turkish PV industry.
The project is now under contract with MEDAS, the region’s power distribution company, which was specifically established to market the power produced by the Konya plant.
