Four new solar farms in cities and towns in western Hamedan Province were inaugurated on Tuesday.
“The four farms, each with production capacity of 7 megawatts, supply 28 MW of electricity to the local grid per day,” IRNA quoted managing director of Hamadan Power Distribution Company as saying.
Two of the plants are in the city of Kabudarahang, and the other two in Famenin and Qahavand. Domestic private companies built the farms with a total foreign investment of $32 million, Mohammad Mahdi Shahidi said.
Each plant generates 14,000 megawatt hours of electricity per annum, helping reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses. If the same amount of energy was to be produced by thermal power, 9,600 tons of carbon dioxide would burn annually, he said.
