Greek solar energy company Photovoltaic Energy Systems is preparing to invest in renewable energy in Turkey, a company official said on March 2. Hurriyet reported that Anadolu agency quoted Evaggelos Kalenteridis announcing solar projects in a district of the western city of Edirne, which neighbors Greece.
“The company was searching for a place to invest in for some time and settled on the Keşan district as it is an organized industrial zone. The company aims to invest in the Thracian region of Turkey at first and then spread projects to the rest of the country,” he said. He added that the company will continue to hold production in Komotini, northeastern Greece.
The Greek solar energy company will operate as a member of Keşan’s Chamber of Industry and Trade, Mustafa Helvacıoğlu, chairman of the board, said. “We welcome foreign and domestic investors to our region and are glad to have the Greek company in Keşan,” he said.
