IBC SOLAR Yat. Ve Tic. Ltd. the Turkish subsidiary of IBC SOLAR AG, a global leader in photovoltaic systems, announces the successful installation of the first grid-connected Photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Turkey. Located in Konya, a city in the Central Anatolia Region, the photovoltaic system covers 3,500 square meters and will generate around 300,000 kilowatts per hour (kWh) of solar power per year at a nominal capacity of approximately 200 kilowatt peak (kWp). This will reduce annual CO2 emissions by an impressive 215 tons. The power plant thereby produces enough environmentally friendly energy for about 160 average Turkish households.


Construction of the Konya solar plant started in May 2012, as a city project under contract with MEDAŞ (Meram Elektrik Dağıtım A.Ş.), the regional power distribution company. The company was specifically founded to market the green energy produced by the solar power plant. The Konya project, which is the first of its kind in the country, will serve as a model application for the Turkish PVNot only the abbreviation for photovoltaics. The term is composed of Photon (Hellenistic for light) and the name of the physicist Alessandor Volta (1745 – 1827), at his time one of the leading scienti....
