Press TV  

 

    Iran spent more than $135 million on critical repair work needed in power plants in the country in the three months to late June amid efforts to boost grid reliability and to prevent power cuts in household and manufacturing sectors over the warn summer months.

    A Monday report by the Fars news agency showed that the Iranian Energy Ministry had carried out extensive repair projects in the country's electricity generation sector in the June quarter.

    The report cited government figures showing that an entire annual repair budget of more than 42 trillion rials had been spent on 661 repair projects in power plants in Iran in a bid to increase generation capacity by more than 9 gigawatts (GW) before the start of summer.

    Five government departments in Iran sign a deal to expand solar energy generation in poor regions.

    The projects included nearly 110 cases of power plant overhaul, including a major project carried out at a hydroelectric dam near Tehran.

    Large cities in Iran avoided power cuts this summer despite the fact the demand for electricity in the country reached an all-time high of nearly 69 GW in early July, up by more than 5 GW against the same day last year.

    That comes as brief power cuts over past years had caused discontent among households and manufacturers in the country.

    Iran plans to increase its total electricity generation capacity by more than 30 GW until 2025 from a current nominal output figure of around 88 GW.
