Iran launched a new solar power plant in Semnan Province on August 11, 2023. The plant, which is located in the city of Damghan, has a capacity of 10 megawatts and is expected to generate enough electricity to power around 10,000 homes. The new solar power plant is the latest in a series of renewable energy projects that Iran has launched in recent years. In 2022, Iran inaugurated a 100-megawatt wind farm in the Khuzestan Province. In 2021, Iran signed a deal with France to build a 1 gigawatt solar power plant in the Kerman Province. Iran’s efforts to increase its reliance on renewable energy are part of a broader effort to reduce its carbon emissions.
