Enerjisa power plant in Kayseri is commissioned


The Erciyes power plant of the energy company Enerjisa, with an installed capacity of 65 megawatts in the province of Kayseri, has been commissioned.


The facility, which is designed as a hybrid wind and solar power plant, produces 221 GW/hour of electricity per year. It will supply electricity to 75,000 homes. When fully completed, the plant’s installed capacity will reach 100 megawatts.

The facility, in which Enerjisa has invested $70 million, will prevent 200,000 tons of carbon emissions per year.

With the Erciyes plant, Enerjisa’s total wind energy production and installed capacity increased to 3,672 megawatts and 277 megawatts respectively.

The company also operates three wind power plants in Çanakkale and Balıkesir provinces and Dağpazarı region in the southern province of Mersin with a total of 212 installed capacities.

“We are getting closer to our objectives with the agreement signed with Enercon in October and today by bringing the Erciyes wind power plant online. We are determined to increase our investments in renewable energy in the coming period,” said Kıvanç Zaimler, Head of Energy Group of Sabancı Holding.

Enerjisa signed an agreement with Enercon for 1,000 megawatts of wind power earlier this month.


“Investing in renewable energies is our strategic priority. Over the next five years, as Enerjisa, we will increase our generation capacity to 5,000 megawatts by investing only in renewable energy, so we aim to increase the share of renewable energy to 60%,” said İhsan Erbil Bayçöl, CEO of Enerjisa Üretim.

The company’s goal for hybrid solar power investments is at least 150 megawatts in three years, he added.

Enerjisa, which is a partnership between Sabancı and EON, is Türkiye’s leading electricity distribution, retail and customer solutions company with consolidated revenues of 31 billion Turkish liras in 2021.
