The state-run Iran Power Generation, Distribution and Transmission Company (Tavanir) says the national grid cannot take loads higher than 40 gigawatts in winter.
Mostafa Rajabi Mashhadi, a company spokesman, said if demand surpasses 40,000 megawatts load shedding and outages will be inevitable, Bargh News website reported.
“For the first time in decades, electricity consumption in winter has exceeded 39 GW.”
Compared to last year consumption has risen by a whopping 15%, he said, and added that in January 2020, demand rarely reached 34,000 megawatts. It was 39,500 MW on Monday up 15% compared to the same day in 2020.
