Ever increasing energy needs in today’s world no longer corresponds to the continuous production of new solutions are required. Supporting renewable energy sources has been required to remedy this need. Renewable energy support for the world-wide accepted feed-in tariff (FiT) policy is being used effectively. FiT support policies, structure and application vary between countries. In this study a new support model is proposed. The most important aim of this model is to obtain highest benefit for both the government and the investors. The proposed flexible pricing model is depending on a country’s economic status, the energy market and energy production plants technical data. Efficiency increasing of the photovoltaic (PV) systems and reduction of the costs has increased the choice of renewable energy. Thanks to the spread of environmentally friendly solutions and production, load low problems in electric power systems can be solved and losses can be reduced. There are many areas in Konya to establish solar power plant. In this study a performance analysis of the 1 MW grid-connected PV power plants which was founded in Konya was conducted. In addition, proposals have been made for investors and legislators for more efficient and less costly energy production.
