Six Power Projects Come Online in Kerman, Yazd

Six power projects were inaugurated in Yazd and Kerman provinces on Tuesday. Four were in Yazd and two in Kerman and will augment sustainable electricity supply to households and industries, the Energy Ministry news portal Paven reported.
The projects in Yazd include the 10 megawatt Chadormalu solar power plant in Ardakan and electricity supply to six villages costing $10 million.
Yazd has nine solar power plants and 20 more with total 320 MW capacity are in different stages of construction. The new units are expected to be ready by 2022.
Yazd has the highest solar power output in the country. With 3,200 plus sunlight hours in a year the ancient, historic and desert region  is highly suitable for harnessing solar power. It is an industrial province as almost 75% of the power is used by industries.
It is one of Iran's known centers for textiles and is famous for producing ceramics and construction material. 
In Kerman, a 6 MW small scale power station with distributed generation system came on line. Eleven villages were connected to the power grid. The projects cost $2 million.
Distributed generation refers to electricity produced in small quantities near the point of use, as alternative or supplement to traditional centralized grid-connected power. It reduces the cost and complexity associated with transmission and distribution, while offsetting peak electricity demand and stabilizing the local grid.
