Within the scope of the “Forests from the Sun” project implemented by the Aegean Forest Foundation, a 500 kilowatt Solar Energy System is being installed. The carbon certification of the project will be carried out by GTE Carbon.

Within the scope of the “Forests from the Sun” project implemented by the Aegean Forest Foundation with the support of the Izmir Development Agency (İZKA), a part of the electricity produced will be used for agricultural irrigation of the olive grove of 30 thousand trees in Menderes-Oglayanasi; The surplus electricity produced will also be sold to GEDIZ EDAS. New forest areas will be created with the income. The project, which has also applied to the Gold Standard for carbon certification under the name “Solar for Forests”, is expected to be the first project developed by a non-governmental organization in Turkey to be certified in the field of solar energy.
