Tehran Power Plants Prepare for Summer Tehran Power Plants Prepare for Summer

Three thermal power plants in Tehran, namely Tarasht in west and Rey and Besat in the south, provide electricity to the megalopolis. However, since the start of fall and with decline in consumption, two of the stations have ceased operation, said the director of Technical Support Office at the Thermal Power Plants Holding Company.
“Tarasht Power Plant was disconnected in October and Rey Power Station stopped work in November. Currently only Besat Power Plant is operating,” IRNA quoted Gholamreza Mehrdad as saying.
Besat station, which was built half century ago, has a capacity of 200 megawatts. It supplies a small part of 3,000 MW Tehran needs. But as power grids in all cities are synchronized, Tehran’s electricity demand is also provided by plants in other cities, he said.
