Goldcar works every day to reduce the carbon footprint on the environment. We work on projects that positively impact both the environment and the social environment in which they are developed. We have the Clean CO2 Certified Seal that guarantees our reductions.
We participate in a project in Turkey, Balkesir Wind Power Plant, which has the Gold Standard certificate. It is happening in the province of Balikesir, involving six towns in the Marmara region and aims to use the potential of wind energy in the country to compensate for the energy requirement through sustainable and profitable production.
The park has a total installed capacity of 142.4MW from 57 turbines, each with a capacity of 2.5MW. Annually it supplies about 350,000MWh of clean electricity to the grid. It also stimulates the local economy by providing employment opportunities for local villages. Approximately 130,000 people benefit from this project’s renewable energy.
If you would like to join in with our commitment and help with this project, you can offset CO2 emissions when you book your Goldcar Blue vehicle.
