The electricity generation capacity of Iran's small-scale power plants reached 1,100 MW during the current year’s summer peak consumption period, the Head of Iran Grid Management Company (IGMC) Mostafa Rajabi Mashhadi said, Trend reports citing IRNA.

Rajabi Mashhadi said the share of small-scale power plants in Iran's electricity generation stands at 2 percent.

He recommended that overhaul operations be conducted for small scale power plants in order to get them ready to operate at full capacity during peak consumption periods.

Tehran, Isfahan, and Mazandaran have the highest number of installed small-scale power plants, said Rajabi Mashhadi.

The official noted that the government is pursuing a plan to make it possible for such power plants to sign contracts with industrial units to sell their generated electricity directly to the customers and get paid accordingly.
