President Erol gave the following information about the status of the project: “The number of people applying for heating is around 500. Our prerequisite for starting geothermal heating was the application of 2,000 people. As a result of our meetings in Ankara, we will request a loan from Iller Bank. With the loan we will get, it will be possible to bring geothermal heating to your home by making appropriate facilities. Although it is not possible for this year, we will hopefully start warming up at affordable prices in 2023.”
