Supplying electricity to villages in far-flung areas is on the agenda of Iran Power Generation, Distribution and Transmission Company (Tavanir), the head of the rural electricity supply project said. 
“Tavanir plans to link 400 villages to the national power network that do not have a rural code and are hard to access,” Valiollah Maslehati Sharabiani was quoted as saying by ILNA on Monday.
Noting that 30% of Iran’s population live in rural areas, Sharabiani added that the Energy Ministry aims to supply power to all villages with at least 10 households.
According to the official, some Iranian villages, such as those in north Kerman Province, are now being provided with electricity from renewable sources.
