Hydrogen is considered the lightest, simplest and most plentiful element in the universe. It can be a source of new, renewable and almost the cleanest fuel of the future. Also, solar energy has a significant share among renewable energy source. Especially photovoltaic power plants represent a good solution concerning electric energy supply. Turkey is looking for environment friendly renewable energy sources like most country. Photovoltaic power plants can be a sustainable energy source with huge potential for Turkey. Bursa province is located in the northwestern region and there are more efficient regions in terms of solar energy such as south region in Turkey. Soğuksu photovoltaic solar power plant is the first large scale power plant with 7 MW peak power in Bursa. In this study, generation values of a power plant were observed under actual operating conditions. The generation data showing the actual daily electricity generation values have been recorded in the library of the plant. This data has been used to investigation of daily hydrogen production performance of the power plant in theoretically. Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyzer was selected for electrolysis of water. According to results, the maximum mass flow of hydrogen production can be 0.0625 kgs-1H2 for peak load and the electrolyzer can produce 1630 kg hydrogen in a clear summer day.
