This solar power plant is located in the province of Konya (200 kilometers south of Ankara), the president of this country emphasized that he wants an energy-independent Turkey, and that during the construction of this power plant, very high-quality oil was discovered in the region of Anatolia.

The power plant has more than three million solar panels, which according to estimates should produce three million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, and thus supply two million citizens with electricity, which is also a large amount of money saved on fossil fuels.
