The First Energy Producing University in Turkey Using Solar Panel

Studies continue on renewable energy sources all over the world. One of the focused areas is photovoltaic systems that produce electricity using sunlight. In this regard, Hasan Kalyoncu University (HKU), continues its success as the first university in Turkey producing renewable energy.
Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources stated country’s energy policy and strategy in the years 2015-2023 by announcing “Turkey’s National Renewable Energy Action Plan”. According to the strategy determined, the energy consumption will double in 2023 by present, more renewable energy sources will be used to meet the needs, and so solar energy systems have been targeted to be increased to 3.000mw’y of power.
Over 170 Tons of CO2 Emission Has Been Blocked Through Solar Power Plant
The Rector of Hasan Kalyoncu University, Dr. Tamer Yilmaz, said that a rooftop solar power plant that has 196 kWp power and uses photovoltaic technology was built on the university’s School of Health Sciences building, and the energy produced by the plant is used primarily in self-consumption. Rector Yilmaz added; after self-consumption covered, the redundant amount of electricity is delivered to the grid. Yılmaz; “in the scope of legal regulations, the redundant amount of electricity is sold to the electricity distribution company serving in Gaziantep. The condition of the plant and production values can be tracked online instantly, and it is reported by KALİTTO (Kalyoncu Innovation and Technology Transfer Office) monthly. Solar power plant, which has been serving for eight months, with about 292 260 kWh of green energy it produced, has prevented over 170 tons of CO² emissions.
Unlicensed manufacturers are permitted to install up to 1 MW power plant. To use the remaining capacity, the formal process has been completed by KALİTTO office and new plant permits have been obtained. As a result, almost all of the energy consumption of Hasan Kalyoncu University will be obtained from
