From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wind power in Turkey is gradually expanding in capacity. In 2006, 19 MW of wind power was installed, and in 2007, installed wind capacity increased to almost 140 MW:[1]

"There are ten wind farms—mainly on land—clustered together in the west of the country and in the Aegean region, including in Çanakkale, close to the site of ancient Troy, Çeşme, Akhisar and on the island of Bozcaada."[1]

Turkey is set to double the amount of its electricity supplied by wind power with the construction of a wind farm in southeast Turkey which will have an installed capacity of 135 megawatts (MW) when it is completed in 2009. The project will use 52 of the latest generation of turbines from GE Energy, each rated at 2.5 MW.[1] Installed wind power is expected to reach 808.81 MW by the end of 2008.[2] Wind energy potential for Turkey is 58GW.
