Construction of Iran’s largest solar farm has begun in the north of Fars Province, the governor said.
“The project is being carried out by Merat International Group in cooperation with foreign investors,” Enayatollah Rahimi said without naming the foreign sides.
The farm will be completed in two phases. “Chehrak Plain in Bavanat County is location of the first phase with 461 MW capacity,” IRNA quoted him as saying.
Bavanat is 231 km north of the provincial capital Shiraz and has suitable capacity for generating renewable energy, especially solar.
