Hurriyet – In order to generate energy through wind power, Perfect Wind, a French energy firm, is building a 150-megawatt power plant in Geycek village in Kirsehir with an investment of €210 million at the first stage. The French company which plans to make a 400-megawatt investment of €550 million in Turkey until the end of 2011 intends to make a renewable energy investment of at least €1.5 billion in five years' time.
