Azerenerji Starts Electricity Export to Northwest Iran

Azerbaijan started to export electricity to Iran on June 1, the country's major electricity producer, Azerenerji JSC, announced.
Yahya Babanli, Azerenerji's spokesman, said the company has started to transfer 80 megawatts of electricity to Moghan and Astara regions in northwestern Iran, IRNA reported.
The capacity is slated to increase to meet the two sides' terms of agreement. Iran reached an agreement with Azerbaijan in March to purchase 180 megawatts of electricity from the Caucasian country to prevent a potential power shortage in summer.
Under swap deals, Iran exports electricity to Armenia and Azerbaijan in winter and imports it when domestic demand soars in summer. The country trades electricity with four neighbors on its northwestern and western borders, namely Azerbaijan Republic, Turkey, Armenia and Iraq.
