Frequent power outages in Tehran have adversely affected industrial units, taking a toll on electrical equipment and reducing efficiency.
According to IRNA, the Energy Ministry has announced the daily timetable of blackouts in the metropolis since past two weeks, as the province suffers a water shortage unprecedented in the past few decades, which has significantly reduced hydropower generation.
The Energy Ministry’s projections show hydropower plants’ electricity output will not exceed 6,000 megawatts this summer while the figure stood at 9,300 MW last summer.
