Upsolar Selected for Nearly 3 MW of New Projects in Turkey

Contract with Erikoğlu SunSystem is company's latest milestone in rapidly growing solar market

ISTANBUL - Upsolar, a leading provider of solar PV modules and services, today announced the signing of a 2.84 MWp contract in Turkey with Erikoğlu SunSystem, an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) leader with more than 2,000 systems deployed.


Erikoğlu SunSystem will install 3,548 Upsolar UP-M250P and 7,592 Upsolar UP-M260P modules in the coming months across three projects in the cities of Denizli and Afyon.

"Like Erikoğlu SunSystem, Upsolar has earned a stellar reputation for customer satisfaction," said A. Nuri Erikoğlu, Board Member of Erikoğlu SunSystem. "From its transparent bill of materials to its meticulous attention to quality control, the company was the clear choice to deliver the strong performance our customers have come to expect. We anticipate a smooth installation and exceptional results from this collaboration, and from those to come down the road."

Since entering Turkey in 2014, Upsolar has quickly emerged as a key driver for the country's solar energy development. Government officials are targeting 30 percent of Turkey's electricity production from renewable sources by 2023, with solar PV playing a large role in its long-term generation portfolio.

"Our rapid growth in Turkey can be attributed to Upsolar's nimble approach to entering promising new regions, supported by a network of dynamic production partners," said Esra Canpolat, Sales Manager for Upsolar Turkey. "To date, we've sold more than 32.2 MW of our high-quality modules into the market, surpassing our initial targets. This summer, we are expanding our local stock to more quickly satisfy customers' needs and further strengthen our presence in this promising young solar market."
