The Metropolitan Municipality of İzmir installs a solar power plant on the roof of Mustafa Necati Cultural Center, Pool İzmir, Konak Tunnel Facilities, Çeşme and Çaybaşı Fire Brigade Center as part of Mayor Tunç Soyer’s vision of “Green İzmir”. Thanks to these facilities, which will be put into operation at the end of 2021, 232 tons of CO2 emissions per year will be prevented.
Izmir Metropolitan Municipality continues its efforts to meet the electricity needs of its facilities from renewable energy sources. Bergama slaughterhouse, Aliağa fire brigade, Uzundere multi-purpose sports hall, Selçuk transfer station, ESHOT Gediz Workshop, Bayraklı After the installation of solar panels on the roof of the Ekrem Akurgal Life Park, the Çiğli Family Counseling Center and the Seyrek Dog Shelter facilities, the Metropolitan will the 13 solar power plants that will be commissioned by the end of this year will increase the number of installations that meet the electricity needs of the sun to 5.
Soyer: “Our goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent”
The Mayor of the Metropolitan Municipality of İzmir, Tunç Soyer, stated that they are committed to using public resources effectively while reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions in İzmir with the solar power plants, which they plan to rapidly increase in number , and said: “Our goal is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 percent to 40 percent.

We are working hard to promote the right to life of to protect people and all other living things in our city. Our goal is to build a circular city that fits in with nature, is resilient, has a high prosperity and at the same time protects biodiversity.”
both nature and economy
A solar power plant with a capacity of 310 kilowatts will be installed on the roofs of the Mustafa Necati Cultural Center, construction of which was completed in Yeşilyurt, Pool İzmir in the Bornova Aşık Veysel Recreation Area, Konak Tunnel Fixed Facilities in Yeşildere, Çeşme and Torbalı Çaybaşı Fire Brigade buildings. These facilities prevent 232 tons of CO2 emissions per year. With the commissioning of 5 solar power plants, the zmir Metropolitan Municipality will generate approximately 13 million 2000 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually from 970 facilities. This amount, which will meet the electricity needs of a thousand households, corresponds to an annual economic value of 3.5 million liras. This prevents the emission of 482 tons of carbon dioxide.
More than 4 tons of CO2 emissions were prevented

The facilities put into use to date have prevented a total of more than 4 tons of CO2 emissions.
ESHOT to build two more solar power plants
ESHOT General Directorate is installing two more new solar power plants (GES). ESHOT, which is preparing to implement the second phase of the solar power plant at Gediz Atelier, will also install photovoltaic panels that generate electricity from solar energy on the roofs of Çiğli Ataşehir’s facilities.
The 924 kilowatt Ataşehir solar power plant is expected to be commissioned in 2022, and the second phase of the 1750 kilowatt Gediz solar power plant is expected to be commissioned in 2023. With the Gediz and Ataşehir solar power plants, a total of 355 tons of CO2 emissions are avoided annually.
