This study presents energy and economic analysis of the wind turbine plant’s draft for the Aksaray city. Fossil fuels are used for energy production that is giving the environmental damage and increasing the global warming. The countries utilize a renewable energy for decreasing the global warming’s impacts. The wind energy is the one of the important renewable energy. In this study, drafting 1 [MW] of the wind turbine plant was calculated energy and economic analysis for the Aksaray city. When 1 [MW] of the wind turbine plant is set up, it was calculated production of energy quantity that was found 2628000 [kWh]. Cost of the total investment was obtained 1 698312 [$] and cost of the unit electric energy was found 0.052 [$/kWh]. The wind power plant’s construction was calculated step by step that these values were found in with escalation way and without escalation way. According to these results, the units of the investment’s cost, unit of the operation’s cost, unit of the maintenance’s cost were calculated for economic analysis. In conclusion, energy and economic analysis of the wind turbine plant’s draft is the first academic study for the Aksaray city. According to the literature, building the wind energy plant between Ortaköy village and Ağaçören village can be suitable for the Aksaray city.
