Recently, photovoltaic systems have been developed and production of electricity directly from the sunlight has gained importance and become widespread. Photovoltaic systems will obviously be more important in the near future with their low cost, compared to other energy production methods. For example, in some European countries, municipalities produce solar potential maps to determine suitable spots for photovoltaic systems. However, in Turkey, there is no production of the solar potential maps for this purpose.
