Vic 801 recently posted asking about using Solar panels for electricity and thought this article may be of interest. I've noticed that there is a big drive in the UK recently to get people to install these panels.
It's always surprised me since living here that Turkey aren't doing the same thing and was disappointed to read the article below because it doesn't look like Turkey is very interested, which is a great pity as Turkey should really be promoting this.
Tunç Korun is the second generation boss of Form Group (Form Şirketler Grubu), which has specialized in productive use of energy since 1965.

Korun has dedicated much of his energy to produce his own electricity by installing solar panels of 2 kwh to the roof of his own house.
