Two solar power plants in Rey and Damavand counties of Tehran Province were inaugurated Tuesday.
A 12.7 megawatt solar power plant in Shahr-e-Rey City in the south and an 8.4 MW photovoltaic power station in Damavand in the east were launched. The two green energy projects were completed at a cost $10 million, the Energy Ministry news portal Paven reported.
The two renewable plants will generate more than 34 gigawatts of electricity per year. If the same amount of power was to be produced in a thermal power plant, over 12 million cubic meters of gas and 9,000 cubic meters of water would be consumed per annum.
The solar plants will prevent the emission of 29,000 tons of environmental pollutants (carbon dioxide).
