Construction of 5 solar parks underway across Iran -EQ

In Short- Iran is currently constructing five solar parks as part of its renewable energy initiatives.

In Details – The government has approved the plan for the establishment of 17 solar parks in six provinces, five of which are being constructed,” Ruhollah Ebrahimi said.

According to the official, the mentioned parks are being established in Qazvin and Kerman provinces.

The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Organization (SATBA), on behalf of the Energy Ministry, is in charge of the construction of the mentioned solar parks, and so far this organization has had good cooperation with ISIPO for the implementation of the said plan, Ebrahimi explained.

According to the official, the government has also allowed the export of the excess electricity generated by the mentioned solar parks.

“Iran’s electricity network is connected through transmission lines and substations, and if electricity production exceeds electricity consumption in the country, and if approval is obtained from neighboring countries, it is possible to export the excess electricity,” the official said.

Back in July 2023, the head of SATBA said that solar parks would be established in every province in the country during the current Iranian calendar year (ends on March 20, 2024).

Mahmoud Kamani said that these parks will be set up with the aim of renewable energy development in the country.

The official put the current capacity of Iran’s renewable power plants at 1,070 megawatts (MW).

He has also previously announced the construction of 110,000 solar power plants with a capacity of five kilowatts (KW) for low-income groups in the current Iranian calendar year.
