CP-Pars has commissioned a solar power plant with nominal 10 MW capacity in Ardekan, Yazd Province, Iran. The primary purpose of this power plant is for peak shaving of Iran summertime electricity consumption peak. CPG-Pars has secured a power purchase agreement for this power plant in the framework of modification of Article. 61 of electricity consumption regulation of Ministry of Energy.
In this power plant, latest technologies for solar panels and inverters are to be used to guarantee high electricity generation and low CAPEX. Our simulation shows that the power plant, on average, contributes to summertime peak at 92% of its nominal capacity. The power plant initial investment is estimated at 5 million Euros and its production in the first year is to be more than 21 million kWh.
