Farming communities and industries cut their power consumption (by turning off water pumps and machinery) in the hot season (June-August) by 2 billion kilowatt hours, the Energy Ministry spokesman for the power department said.
“As per a contract between the ministry and the two sectors (industrial and agro), they consumed much less electricity during peak hours and together got $6 million discount in the billing,” IRNA quoted Mostafa Rajabi Mashhadi as saying.

The company’s annual power generation capacity is around 300 billion kilowatt hours.
