Sunergy Ventures, Tes Koop partner on 175 MW PV project in Turkey


U.S. group Sunergy Ventures International LLC and Turkey’s Tes Koop Temiz Enerji Kooperatifi have signed an agreement to develop a 175 MW utility-scale solar project with the Seydisehir Municipality of Turkey’s Konya region.

The companies also have a second 75.4 MW PV project in works with Konya Selcuk University.

The projects will use U.S.-made PV panels, according to Sunergy Ventures.

The companies will sell the power produced by the projects to the Turkish government under a long-term PPA at $0.133 per kilowatt hour.

Praising the Turkish government, Sunergy said the country’s renewable energy policy was providing a clear and stable signal to the market, motivating large amounts of foreign capital, enhancing Turkey’s energy independence and creating new jobs.

The companies said they were encouraged by the Turkish government’s policies to add large utility-scale projects to their pipeline.

Tes Koop describes itself as "the first renewable energy co-op in Turkey."
