Need to Import 900 MW of Electricity in Summer

Close to 900 megawatts of electricity will be imported to meet demand in summer and prevent potential blackouts in the hot season, a deputy minister energy said on Tuesday. 
Homayoun Haeri added that the country needs to increase its power purchase by 200 MW due to the unprecedented low precipitation in winter, which has cut the output of hydropower plants, IRIB reported.
"Iran regularly imports 700 MW of electricity in summer, but the country will face critical water shortages and blackouts since rainfall was dismal in the winter," he said.
According to the official, the backup power will be supplied by Azerbaijan.
