A German-Spanish company said on Monday that it is willing to make joint venture investment to build solar power plant to produce some 50 megawatts electricity in partnership with Bakhtar Electricity of Iran.
Bakhtar District Electricity Company (BDEC) will be responsible to generate, transfer and distribute electricity in three provinces of Lorestan, Markazi and Hamadan.
The government adopted the policy to generate renewable energies and in the context of the Sixth Five-Year Economic, Social and Cultural Development Plan, some 5,000 megawatts energy should increase to the national power generation capacity.
Minister of Energy Hamid Chitchian already told IRNA that at least 7,000 billion rials has been allocated for new energies.
A senior director of BDEC Alireza Sheikhi said that considering potential capability of the region for having 300 sunny day in the year and existed solar radiant energy in average of around 4.5 kilovolts per hour on square meter, which is higher than international standards, an appropriate ground for building a solar power plant in the region is available.
