The solar portfolio will be developed under the Renewables Energy Resources Support Mechanism (YEKDEM) set down by the Turkish government , which offers feed-in tariffs to projects in order to spur growth in private investments within the sector.

In total, the 85MW Project is expected to cost around US$181 million.

Once completed, the project will contribute to Turkey’s goal of installing around 27GW of non-hydro renewable generation capacity by 2023. Of that total, about 5GW is expected to be from PV sources.
