Petrol Ofisi of Turkey's leading fuel and lubricants industry, continues to lead the way in delivering solar station number 5 in the sector. Petrol Ofisi is also the leader in this field with a total installed power of 258 kWp obtained from solar energy at its stations in Bodrum, Izmir, Torbalı, Antalya and Ankara.
Every year 426.368 trees are saved and 1.280 tons of carbon emission are prevented with 196 kWh of electricity to be consumed annually from solar energy at Petrol Ofisi stations. Emphasizing that they will continue to increase the number of stations that supply their electricity with solar energy, Petrol Ofisi CEO Selim Şiper said, “Our work and goal in this field is one of the best examples of Petrol Ofisi's general approach towards our country and the future”.
Petrol Ofisi started the solar station project with Paşalılar Petrol (2019 kWp) in Muğla Bodrum in 42,075, and then Yaman Petrol in İzmir Çiğli (44,28 kWp), and As Mira Petrol in Torbalı (42,24 kWp). ), Ali Şahin Petrol (70,62 kWp) in Antalya Alanya and finally Kadem Petrol (59,40 kWp) in Ankara. Petrol Ofisi stations within the project provide almost all of their electricity needs from solar energy, as well as deliver the excess energy they generate to the grid.
The leader in this field with a total installed power of 258,61 kWp
The solar energy systems of Petrol Ofisi stations, which include powerful, new generation, more efficient and locally produced solar energy technologies, are installed by RM Istanbul and Solarçatı. Petrol Ofisi is also the leader in its sector in this field with a total installed power of 258,61 kWp, generating electricity from solar energy at its stations. Petrol Ofisi's 5 stations will consume 426.368 kWh of solar electricity annually. This figure is equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of a town or neighborhood with 140 homes. With the electricity generated from solar energy to be consumed at Petrol Ofisi stations, an average of 1.280 trees are saved every year, and 196 tons of carbon emission is prevented.
"We preferred strong, new generation, more efficient, domestic production technologies"
Stating that the solar energy project constitutes one of the most beautiful examples of Petrol Ofisi's philosophy, spirit and standards, Petrol Ofisi CEO Selim Şiper said, “Petrol Ofisi has It takes important steps to contribute. With the mission of the leadership in its sectors, it puts signature to improvements, innovations and pioneers. The fact that these 79 stations obtain their electricity need from solar energy is a reflection and one of the best examples of our approach and philosophy. In this field, we acted with care and meticulousness in a way that befits the leader, targeting the best, the most ideal and advanced technology. We did not limit our goals in this matter to any number. We have the desire to be able to meet the electricity needs of every possible station with solar energy, ”he said.
