Electricity - CLK Akdeniz Enerji (Tedaş), Kalkan, Antalya, Turkey.

CLK Akdeniz Enerji

The national Turkish electricity company is called Tedaş.  But the company that distributes electricity to this part of Turkey is called, CLK Akdeniz Enerji. We are customers of the distribution company.

They  have an office in Kalkan which is located just behind  Deniz Bank, in  the premises that were previously the Makkara Cafe,  (under the gym).   Kalkan Town Location Code (KTLC) OA2 M14 (Grid D5) http://ktln.it/MQfNxM

Their phone number is 0242 844 3102, or you can call a central customer service helpline (in Antalya), on 186.

Their  opening hours are 08.00 to 17.00, with a lunch break between 12.30 and  13.30.  In an emergency you can reach them up to midnight on the phone.

Turkey  operates on 230v, 50Hz, with European style two pin plugs.  If you  bring electrical equipment over from the UK it should work perfectly  well.

There are different tariffs for business and personal  customers.  We don't look at business tariffs here, but for personal  customers there is a choice of two types of tariff.  One tariff charges  you according to the time of day you use electricity.  This is the  variable rate tariff.  The other charges an average rate, irrespective  of what time you use your electricity.  This is the standard tariff.

Variable Rate Tariff
The  way in which charges are calculated is rather complicated.  If you are  really interested you can get detailed information from the CLK Akdeniz Enerji website.  We can tell you that:

You can see from this that it is almost three times as expensive in the evening as it is overnight.

Standard Tariff
On this scheme you pay a standard charge irrespective of what time of day it is. 

Tips on keeping your bills low

In winter

In summer

Paying the bill
You  can pay your bill in cash (plastic cards are not accepted), at the  office in Kalkan.  You can also set up a standing order with your bank.   Just take in your latest bill and they will do the rest.

If you have recently bought a property, once the tapu is in your name  you should transfer the electricity bill into your name.  This incurs  and administration charge.  It is worth mentioning that during  construction, building companies pay a relatively high charge for their  electricity, and you need to ensure that once the property is yours you  stop paying 'builder's electricity'.  If you don't you may find that you  are paying significantly over the odds.
