The 100 kWp system, which was connected to the grid last month, was installed on open land belonging to the winery by the Turkish EPC contractor Laterna from Istanbul. The premises also serve as a boutique hotel and the winery ranks among one of the best in Turkey.
“Even on hot days, Innotech Solar modules produce significantly more power than other modules on the market," said Can Ortabas, the owner and managing director of Urla Winery. "This was very important for us when making our decision, as we often see temperatures of up to 45°C.”
During testing conducted in the selection process, ITS modules demonstrated a temperature coefficient of minus 0.39 percent per Kelvin in a photon test laboratory. The winery’s solar system produces around 7.8 MWh more power a year than systems with modules that only have an average temperature coefficient.
