Solar power for Iranian nomads

Financial Tribune – Technology has created the conditions to help nomads and tribal communities with facilities to ease their daily, often difficult, tasks without interfering in their way of life 

A project has been launched to supply power to 25,000 nomad families via portable solar power generators, director of rural electrification affairs at Iran Power Generation, Distribution and Transmission Company (Tavanir) said.

“The plan will be completed in two years and nomads will have access to electricity during their regular journeys,” Ali Chehel Amirani was quoted as saying by the Energy Ministry news portal Paven.

Over 4,850 nomadic households in remote areas now have access to renewable energy, namely solar and wind power.
