Iran's First Solar Power Plant Comes on Stream

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's first solar power plant was inaugurated in Shiraz on Saturday, the director of the solar energy division of the Iranian Renewable Energies Organization announced.



All the equipment for the power plant was manufactured using domestic materials and expertise, Peyman Kanan told the MNA.

"Iran has taken a giant stride towards generating electricity at the national level through the inauguration of the solar power plant," he added.

The Shiraz solar power plant boasts a modest 250KW energy production capacity, which can be increased to 500KW by installing larger solar panels, he explained.
