Peak electricity consumption in the capital Tehran has increased by over 1,000 megawatts in the past two years, the managing director of Tehran Regional Electricity Company said.
“Peak demand for electricity has increased from 8,989 MW in the fiscal 2015-16 to 10,091 MW in the current fiscal year [ending March 20] in Tehran, indicating a 6% growth,” Gholamreza Khoshkholq was also quoted as saying by ILNA on Saturday.
Stressing that the ratio of installed power stations to peak demand in Tehran is lower than the national average, Khoshkholq said while Iran’s total power stations have a load 2.5 times bigger than the country’s peak consumption, the ratio stands at 1.5 times in the capital, which shows power outage is more likely in Tehran during peak demand hours.
