“Water From The Sun” Project in Kırıkkale
“Water From The Sun” project generates the power needed to fill the water tanks in rural areas of Kırıkkale province. The solar pumping project was prepared and partially funded by the Directorate of Special Provincial Management of Kırıkkale and received a grant from the Ahiler Regional Developement Agency.
The systems were installed to 17 villages to pump drinking water from the spring up to water tanks. 436 solar modules will be generating 207.000 kWh of energy throughout the year and villagers will be provided free electricity.
The Governor of Kırıkkale Ali Kolat declared that the project cost of USD 308.000 was funded by Directorate of Special Provincial Management (USD 100.000) and Ahiler Regional Developement Agency (USD) 208.000 to support the use of renewable energy to provide drinking water to the villagers at no cost. Villagers have indicated that it is also very important for them to access to water without interruption (because of power cuts).
