(Persia Digest) – The construction of the first power plant in Alborz Province started on Monday. This is a joint project with a foreign company in Eshtehard County.
The 50-megawatt power plant is being built by the private sector and an investor company from China in 100 hectares of land in the village of Palangabad, Eshtehard County.
Fifty million euros will be paid by the private sector and the foreign investor company to build the plant.
It is forecast that this will be completed next year and ready for exploitation. It is possible to expand it to 100MW.
Due to limited water resources, fossil fuels, and the high cost of gas and steam turbine combined cycle power plants, solar power plants are a priority of Iran’ Ministry of Energy.
Iran has the best geographic location to use clean solar energy and countries like Germany, South Korea, and Italy have already invested in this sector.
