150 Billion TL Mobilizaiton In Energy Saving
150 BILLION TL MOBILIZATION IN ENERGY SAVING
“Energy Team” project will save 15 billion TL per year and 150 billion TL until 2023 to Turkey. Energy and Natural Resources Minister Yıldız spoke at the launch of “Energy Team” and said; “For savings we have established an Energy Team. With this team and work with the 77 million we will move our country into the future full of energy. Turkey needs this mobilization.”
“Energy Team” projects details, which supplies huge energy savings in our country, were announced at the meeting by Energy and Natural Resources Minister Taner Yıldız and Istanbul Chamber of Commerce and Energy Efficiency Association President İbrahim Çağlar in Lutfi Kirdar Congress Palace. Minister Yıldız had speech at the meeting and remarked Turkey’s energy bill is $50 billion and said; “We have established energy team for saving. Energy Team will travel all over Turkey for to be heard from 7 to 70 at home, on the road, at school, in industry and to make everyone an active member of the team.

Minister Taner Yıldız: "Turkey will Take Golden Goal"
Yıldız remarked; housewifes can reduce bills average 25 percent by only making electric savings and said; “A housewife can get a gold with the energy savings.

Industrialists’ will increase their company without the need of bank loans by using energy efficiently. By turning off the lamp at home, warming up vehicles when they are moving instead of warming up when they are standing, by using appliances high energy class A++ instead of using high energy consumption appliances, lightening large areas with sunlight at work can help to make big savings.”
