Electric energy is very important both technologically and economically in today's countries. Countries can generate and consume more energy according to their level of development and the resources they have. In the literature, it is estimated in parallel with the development of countries; there will also be an increase in electrical energy generation and consumption. Similarly, in economies that generate and consume more electricity, it is assumed that this will affect their economic growth. But these assumptions need to be calculated econometrically. This study has been prepared for this purpose. In this study, the relationship between electricity generation, electricity consumption, and economic growth in Turkey was analyzed. In the analysis conducted for the period 1975-2019, the Toda-Yamamoto causality test method was preferred as the method. As a result of the analysis, it was determined that there is a causal relationship from electricity consumption and electricity generation to economic growth, valid for the period 1975-2019 in Turkey.
