Karapınar Energy Industry Zone

Karapınar Energy Industry Zone

Another factor that makes our region most suitable is, for sure, ready infrastructure and available land facilities to energy investments. There are large and nonarable lands in Konya, especially in Karapinar. 59.586.876 square meters of area that has been declared as Industrial Zone Specialized in Energy which will be given further incentives in addition to the current incentive system, will be available to investors. The installed capacity of region's potential for solar power plants is 4000 MW. The Power Substation which will be connected by the manufacturers is at the border of the declared land. With the investments in the region, we think that in an area of 1 m², between 60 KWh and 90 KWh of energy could be produced annually. This amount of energy production per square meter can bring annualy the minimum income of 8 USD/m2/year. When compared to similar places, this area has approximately U.S. $ 10 billion economic value.
