Global solar manufacturer JinkoSolar will provide 500kW of solar PV modules for one of the largest rooftop solar projects in Turkey.
The project, built in the Izmir Ataturk Organized Industrial Zone, covers an area of rooftops that measures out to about 0.4 hectares. The installation, which was financed by the Development Agency of Izmir, is expected to generate enough electricity to power over 290 homes while saving about 400 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
Frank Niendorf, European sales director at Jinko Solar, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the opportunity to join one of the largest rooftop projects in Turkey. JinkoSolar has always been committed to promoting solar power as an essential part of the region's energy mix. We will continue to actively pursue new opportunities in this emerging market.”
