Rehabilitation of Tehran's ageing power infrastructure  is underway and several substations have been repaired or replaced, managing director of Tehran Regional Electricity Company said.
"The capital's aerial and ground transmission cables have been extended by 534 kilometers during the past two years," Gholamreza Khoshkholgh was quoted by the Persian-language economic newspaper Donya-e-Eqtesad as saying Monday.
TREC has also replaced 100 km of old power cables since 2018, he said. 
Tehran electricity network has not had a major overhaul for the past 30 years, which has become a source of concern among officials regarding possible consequences such as high rate of electricity wastage.
