With the project prepared by the Samsun Metropolitan Municipality, the Foreigners' Bazaar, which houses 3 tradesmen, will both generate electricity and be more environmentally friendly. Rainwater will also be collected and used for irrigation of green areas. Mayor Mustafa Demir said, “We are an exemplary municipality for Turkey in terms of using energy efficiently. He is one of those who will set an example in this study.”
Samsun Metropolitan Municipality started work in the Foreigners' Bazaar. The roof of the Foreigners' Bazaar is covered with a sandwich panel sheet by the Department of Science Affairs. With this work, this problem of the bazaar, which is negatively affected by the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter, is eliminated. One-third of the works in the 9-block bazaar have been completed. It is expected to be completed by the end of the year. In the bazaar, where air circulation will be provided with automatic ventilation covers, tradesmen will now serve in a more decent environment.
GES WILL BE INSTALLED ON THE ROOF OF FOREIGNERS' BAZAAR
After the completion of the roof works carried out by the Department of Science Affairs, the construction of the Solar Power Plant (GES) project, prepared by the Department of Environmental Protection and Control, will begin. With the project, which is currently at the tender stage, 2.35 MW of electricity will be produced with the solar energy system panels that will be installed on the roof of the Foreigners' Bazaar. The system, in which 5 thousand 760 panels will be installed, will produce at a rate that will meet the annual electricity consumption of 1000 houses.
ZERO WASTE PROTOCOL BETWEEN METROPOLITAN AND TRADES
A zero waste cooperation protocol was also signed between Samsun Metropolitan Municipality and Foreigners' Bazaar Association. The tradesmen, who will act with the zero-waste understanding of the scope of the protocol, will also show extra sensitivity in energy consumption and reduce the use of plastic. The Metropolitan Municipality will also support the tradesmen by establishing zero waste containers and separation areas. Again, within the scope of the protocol, a technical infrastructure will be created by the Metropolitan Municipality, a water footprint application will be made, and rain water will be collected and used in green field irrigation.
CASE STUDY IN TURKEY
Visiting the tradesmen of the Foreigners Bazaar sohbet Samsun Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Mustafa Demir said, “We are working for a more environmentally friendly and more modern bazaar that produces electricity. Roof production continues. Our craftsmen will work in a cool environment in summer and warm in winter. We will generate electricity with the panels we will install on this roof. In other words, as a result of this work, a bazaar with a zero waste concept and a water footprint will emerge that produces its own energy. We are an exemplary municipality for Turkey in terms of using energy efficiently. He is one of those who will set an example in this study.”
HOW MUCH THANKS TO THE METROPOLITAN
Expressing that they will have a cool environment in summer and a warm environment in winter thanks to the new thermally insulated roof, Samsun Foreigners' Bazaar Association President Alaaddin Sayın said, “We cannot thank enough to the Mayor of the Metropolitan Municipality, Mustafa Demir.

In addition, electricity will be produced with solar panels that will be placed on the roof. We will also have automatic ventilation flaps. Thus, our bazaar will become a decent environment for people to visit.
