Iran's Energy Minister Reza Ardakaniyan has announced that the country's electricity subscribers that use low amount of energy, will be rewarded, Trend reports via IRNA.

"The effort is to move towards better use of environmental resources, and the pattern of consumption is defined based on different regions,” he said.

"This year, for the first time, a pattern of consumption will be applied and all people should set their consumption according to this pattern," said the official.

“The consumption pattern will be published at the beginning of June,” Ardakaniyan said.

He added that if a customer is using very low amount of energy and is also consuming less than the pattern prescribes, the reward is to be given. He did not specify what the reward would be.

He also spoke about the water and electricity related issues in some of Iran's provinces, due to recent heavy floods.

“In the electricity sector, there were 2,352 villages with electricity shortages, now less than 20 villages are still in difficulty, and more than 99 percent of the villages and towns have power systems working,” said Ardakaniyan.
