According to the Energy Ministry news website Paven, Iran can supply its western neighbor with as much as 1,500 MW of electricity per year via five transmission lines.

Iran has exported close to 65 billion kilowatt hours of electricity to Iraq since 2004 worth $6.2 billion, of which $5.2 billion has been paid.
