Istanbul Electric Tram and Tunnel Company (IETT) introduced the country’s first solar-powered bus, Anadolu Agency reported, according to SeeNews.

During a press conference on August 19, the company inaugurated the pilot vehicle and unveiled plans to launch several more. Rooftops will be equipped with 15 solar panels each, and the output will be used to support the batteries and electrical systems.

The project is aimed at lowering carbon dioxide emissions along with fuel consumption, IETT’s environmental engineer Fatmanur Yılmaz was quoted as saying.
