According to Mohammadnejad, 5 kilowatt solar power stations will be commissioned in 125 villages.

Mohammadnejad added that additional power generated by these stations will be connected to the country's electricity grid.

"The stations have been installed by the Mah Taab company and its additional electricity will be purchased with a guarentee," he said.
