EghtesadOnline: Close to 1,000 megawatts of new electricity generation capacity were added to the national grid, as President Ebrahim Raisi inaugurated six steam and gas units in five power stations across the country via videoconference in Zanjan on Thursday.

“Iran’s installed power generation capacity has reached 90 gigawatts, of which 72,600 MW are produced in thermal power plants and the rest is generated by hydroelectric, renewable, nuclear and cogeneration units,” Energy Minister Ali Akbar Mehrabian was quoted as saying by ISNA.

The initiatives were carried out at an estimated cost of $1 billion, he added.

Giving a breakdown on the projects, the minister noted that of the total new capacity, two gas units, each with a capacity of 180 MW, became operational in Aryan Power Plant in Zanjan Province.
