ET Solutions AG, a subsidiary of clean energy developer ET Energy, announced that it has started construction on a 19MW solar power project in Turkey for PV module provider Astronergy.

The project, which is currently being developed in Kahramanmaras, Osmaniye and Ankara, Turkey, will be constructed on 29 hectares of land and will feature 71,064 Astronergy modules.

Once completed, the site will feature an annual power generation of 37,000 MWh. It is expected to be commissioned by the end of October 2017.
