Turkish farms will use solar power to cover their own electrical demand
Solar energy is about to power Turkish agricultural sector, which is among the most significant market sectors in the country. In the upcoming period, the most important innovation for the sector will be clean energy produced by solar panels.
According to Daily Sabah Business, the aim is to use solar energy to cover all energy expenses of agricultural lands that are large enough to support it. The devised system is especially advantageous for farmers using well water, since they have to pay high bills for using electrical engines to pump water from the ground.
The cost of this process decreases nearly one-10th and the system also recoups its costs within two years by operating drip irrigation systems.
The Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, the Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock and the Ministry of Finance are carrying out collaborative work to establish an effective incentive policy on this issue. The fact that the energy surplus obtained from the energy plants will be transferred to the government increases the attractiveness of the project, and the number of Turkish companies specializing in the field is increasing daily.
