Minister of Economy and Energy Sunat Atun, has said that an era of green energy will be launched in the TRNC.
He told Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Kibris Postasi’ that “solar energy will supplement the electricity which will be transferred via cable from Turkey.”
Underlining the importance of solar energy, Atun reminded that the energy infrastructure in the TRNC is 98% dependent on fuel oil. He went on to say that with the use of solar energy, it will be possible to save 33 million TL in one year for the TRNC’s 300 thousand population.
Every citizen will be able to save 100 TL in average, said Atun and in the first stage they will be able to save 10% of energy annually.
