The wind power plant Kurtkayası

  • Replaces the consumption of fossil fuels and thereby contributes to the conservation of water, soil, flora and fauna,
  • Provides future generations with energy from renewable resources,
  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions occurring from extraction, processing, transportation and burning of fossil fuels,
  • Accelerates the growth of the wind power industry and thereby encourages other entrepreneurs to invest in wind power generation and reduces the import dependency especially on natural gas.

Social co-benefits of the plant:

  • Reduction of local poverty and unemployment by increasing job opportunities,
  • Local sourcing of construction and maintenance materials,
  • Increasing the quality of regional electricity consumed by local electricity production,
  • Strengthening of Turkish capabilities, competencies and self-reliance regarding introduction of innovative technologies.
