The AY-YILDIZ Wind Farm operates five 3 MW turbines for a maximum power generation capacity of 15 MW when fully operational. The site was developed by ASMAKİNSAN Temiz Enerji Elektrik Üretim Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş, one of the largest and most credible companies of Turkey in wind and hydro energy development. Annually, AY-YILDIZ generates over 50,000 MW of energy.
Located just outside of Bandirma in the province of Balikesir,Turkey, the AY-YILDIZ contributes to the sustainable development of the national economy through increasing energy independence through provision of renewable electricity to a growing demand of individuals and organizations. Additionally the project preserves the pasture grazed on by local stock through creation of an economic alternative to destructive stone-mining practices.
