Solar panels have been installed in Tehran's Pardisan Park for green electricity production, said Masoumeh Ebtekar, head of the Department of Environment.

She made the statement on her official channel on the online messaging application Telegram without providing details, YJC reported.

As per government plans, state organizations, companies and NGOs enlisted by the Ministry of Energy, are obliged to purchase at least 20% of their electricity needs from green energy suppliers in two years.

According to the national energy roadmap, the government plans to promote green technology to increase the nominal capacity of power plants from 74 gigawatts to over 120 GW by the end of 2025.

The country plans to generate over 5,000 MW of renewable energies in the long-term -- 4,500 MW of wind power and 500 MW of solar.

Currently, the potential for generating over 15 GW of wind energy in areas such as Manjil, Zahedan, Zabol and Nishabour has been recognized by the Renewable Energy Organization of Iran.

Installing new generation high-efficiency turbines, design and construction of new substations, construction of high-voltage transmission lines as well as adoption of renewable and green technologies into the energy mix are among  plans to develop electricity infrastructure.
