A 10-megawatt solar power plant was launched in Kharameh County, Fars Province, on Friday by a domestic firm, marking the southern province's first-ever solar venture.
The photovoltaic project, costing 650 billion rials ($6.5 million), has joined the national grid in less than five months with a completely domestic design, IRNA reported.
However, this is just the initial phase of the plant with a nominal capacity of 130 MW per annum. Upon its completion by March 2019, the plant is projected to generate 250 MW each year.
The project, including financing, is carried out by Iran's Banian Sanat Persian Holding and domestic engineers, in collaboration with an unnamed German consulting firm.
