Encouraging policies to promote prudent power consumption helped the Energy Ministry to export more electricity in 2019, head of Iran Power Generation, Distribution and Transmission Company (Tavanir) said.
“Electricity consumption during peak demand season (June to August) declined by 1,000 megawatts compared to the year before, as a result of which the ministry’s export revenues increased by $143 million,” Mohammad Hassan Motavalizadeh was quoted as saying by IRNA.
Data from the Statistical Center of Iran show Tavanir exported 2.9 billion kilowatt hours of power to neighbors, namely Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan between June and September 2019.
