Electricity

In 1970 the Turkish government took control of the electricity sector to ensure operational integrity. 'TEK' was established as the name for the organisation that was responsible for the generation and distribution of electricity. In 1993 TEK was restructured to become TEAS, production and TEDAS for distribution.

Tedas are therefore the company in Kalkan that deal with electricity supply, and their website has information on taffifs, payment options, how to register to establish an electricity supply and office locations.
