TESUP’s plan is to build a 60 MW (40+20*) solar farm on land close to where the statue of Tesup (God of sky, thunder and storms) was found!
TESUP has been investing in solar tenders in various countries for the last 2 years. And today we’re proud to announce that we’ve participated in and won an important solar tender. Our target is to reach 60 MW installed capacity in that solar farm area alone in 3 years.
An important coincidence is that the Hittite Storm God Tesup statue was first found in an area very close to the land where we’ll build our solar power plant. As you may know, our company name is inspired by the Hittite Storm God Tesup and we can call this nice coincidence “fate”.
The total land area is 475,000 m2 (5,112,857 ft2) and we plan to create a big solar farm by utilizing the majority of the area in a 3-phased approach. The first phase is to complete the 5 MW installed capacity by the end of 2023 and prepare the remaining part of the land for additional parts of our solar power plant. The second and third phases are to expand to a bigger area with a plan of reaching to 40 MW and 60 MW* capacities respectively. Our target is to finish the 60 MW solar plant in 3 years.
TESUP has been investing in solar farms, not only for the generation of its manufacturing energy and supporting the governments with electricity production but also for many other benefits to the environment and community. The land where solar farms are constructed can provide a better habitat for animals and plants. They reduce carbon emissions in the area and create clean energy that doesn’t harm the environment. They discharge no harmful atmospheric discharges. Neither does solar power contaminate land or water. Non-renewable fuels like oil are sometimes leaked or spilled. This effectively affects the soil, vegetation, and animal populations. No such harm is ever connected to solar farms or PV panels. There is also little maintenance for solar farms, when the modules are going, there is little else to do. A crop or livestock farmer can dream of a day without intense work.
Moreover, there have been a couple of studies from places like the Argonne National Laboratory from the US Department of Energy that demonstrate solar farms to be 'pollinator-friendly.' This term implies that the environment present at a solar farm is ideal for pollinators. Like birds and particularly honey bees since the local mowing and spreading of herbicide enhances the development of a wide range of various flowers. Thus expanding organic variety.
So, solar farms can have numerous agricultural and environmental advantages in addition to electricity generation. As TESUP, we are proud to contribute to the environment and community with our solar farm investments.
*20 MW part of the total solar power plant is proposed for further project development and under evaluation.
