With the title of the world’s largest on-stadium solar power plant in terms of installed capacity, it was able to enter the Guinness Book of Records and went down in history.

On the other hand, it has the distinction of being the first project to be implemented on the roof of a stadium in Turkey with a performance-based business model.

We know that the right way to reduce our country’s dependence on foreign energy and create jobs is to use our energy wisely. We, whose heritage hopes, are working to leave a habitable world for future generations.
I would like to thank all those who have contributed to our project, which will contribute more than 1 billion TL to our club throughout the life of our power plant, Energisa and especially our former President, the late Mustafa Genghis and his management. “
