KONYA, TURKEY — İmaş Machinery recently completed its rooftop solar power plant investment that it started on Dec. 31, 2020.

With 5,394 solar energy panels with a capacity of 1780 KWp placed on the roof of its production facility in Konya, Turkey, 2.413.055 kWh of electricity will be produced annually.

İmaş will be able to meet all its annual energy needs from natural resources and sell the excess energy that may arise to a distribution company.

“We minimize carbon emissions with renewable energy,” said Mustafa Özdemir, general manager of İmaş Machinery. “With the rooftop SPP investment we made as İmaş Machinery, we make significant contributions not only to the economy of our company but also to the country's economy and nature.

“Together with the 1780 KWp capacity solar energy system installed in our factory, we will produce 1.3 million TL of electricity annually. In this way, besides meeting all of our annual energy needs from solar energy, we will also sell the remaining energy to distribution companies. The most important gain of the project will be to contribute to the environment by preventing the release of 1,477,833 kg of carbon dioxide gas per year with our renewable energy investment.

“Considering that this amount can be consumed and cleaned by only 131,621 10-year-old trees, we can see that we have made the right investment decision for our future.”
