Cengiz Enerji's decision to embrace solar energy for the Eti-4 Solar Power Plant stems from its numerous operational advantages. From immediate energy availability to the positive environmental impact, solar energy emerged as the most ideal renewable energy source for their aluminum production. Among the leading solar panel suppliers, LONGi stood out due to its longstanding reputation as a global leader in the solar industry. With consistent recognition on the TIER 1 list and a track record of technical superiority, LONGi was the natural choice for Cengiz Enerji.

As Cengiz’s trusted partner, C&D Clean Energy, a global leading supply chain provider, plays a critical role in the success of the Eti-4 Solar Power Plant. Their expertise and reliability in the clean energy sector have been instrumental in supporting the project's implementation, alongside LONGi's ability to expedite large-scale projects. As Murat Yılmaz from Cengiz Enerji explains, “The trust and professionalism that come with working with two major international companies are fundamental guarantees for the timely commissioning of the power plant as planned.” In the world of renewable energy, speed is of the essence, and C&D Clean Energy's seamless delivery of high-quality LONGi brand solar products played a crucial role in the project's success, and in driving forward Turkey's renewable energy revolution.

With the completion of the 65 MW Eti-4 Solar Power Plant, Turkey takes a momentous leap towards sustainable energy sources. This milestone project not only inspires future clean energy initiatives but also sets a benchmark for others to follow. As the world embraces the renewable energy revolution, LONGi, Cengiz Enerji, and their valued partner C&D Clean Energy stand at the forefront, empowering companies to lead the charge towards a greener and more sustainable future.

The environmental impact of the Eti-4 Solar Power Plant is truly remarkable. Once fully operational, it is projected to generate an impressive 115,000,000 kWh of clean electricity annually. This substantial output plays a pivotal role in reducing carbon emissions associated with traditional fossil fuel-based power generation, contributing significantly to Turkey's ambitious sustainability goals.

The successful completion of the Eti-4 Solar Power Plant exemplifies how companies can harness the power of solar energy to meet the world's increasing power demands while minimizing environmental impact.

As the collaboration between Cengiz Enerji, LONGi, and C&D Clean Energy comes to completion, the remarkable Eti-4 Solar Power Plant stands as a shining example of the potential of renewable energy in driving economic growth while minimizing environmental impact. The project exemplifies how companies can successfully harness the power of solar energy to meet the world's increasing power demands.
