Iran inaugurates its largest wind farm as part of its efforts to increase production of electricity from renewable sources.

The 18-turbine wind farm, located in Tarom County in northern Iran, has a nominal capacity of generating 61 megawatt hours of power annually, Xinhua reported.

Further, the wind farm, built with latest technologies at a cost of around $101 million, was financed by the National Development Fund of Iran, the country’s sovereign-wealth fund.

Also, the country has a comprehensive plan to harness renewable energy and streamline the country’s energy mix which mainly relies on fossil fuel power stations.

Moreover, it has a high solar energy potential also with around 300 clear sunny days. The potential has been the main reason behind traction from the investors from within and abroad.

According to the solar experts, around 9 million MWh of power can easily be produced in a day.

Under the current energy policies, the combined solar, wind and geothermal power plants are economically viable.
