Iran distributes 20,000 solar panel sets to nomadic households in 2.5 years

(MENAFN) In a significant stride towards enhancing energy access and sustainability, Iran's Nomads Affairs Organization has reported the distribution of over 20,000 solar panel sets to nomadic households across the country over the past 2.5 years. According to Shayan Naderi, head of the organization, this initiative marks a substantial increase from 700 sets distributed in August 2021, highlighting the government's concerted efforts to harness renewable energy technologies for remote communities.

Employing knowledge-based and indigenized technologies, the solar panel distribution project underscores Iran's commitment to leveraging innovation for sustainable development. The government's support is evident, with subsidies covering 90 percent of the costs for each solar panel system, thereby making clean and reliable electricity more accessible to nomadic households situated in far-flung areas.

Solar power emerges as a viable solution for addressing the energy needs of remote communities, offering a clean, affordable, and virtually limitless source of electricity. Solar-powered photovoltaic panels harness the sun's energy to generate electricity, providing a renewable alternative to traditional energy sources. This transition towards solar energy not only promotes environmental sustainability but also empowers nomadic communities by reducing dependence on fossil fuels and enhancing energy self-sufficiency.

Iran's commitment to renewable energy is further exemplified by previous initiatives, including the implementation of a program for supplying nomadic households with mobile small-scale power stations in October 2019. Additionally, partnerships between governmental organizations such as the Planning and Budget Organization, Imam Khomeini Relief Foundation, and the Organization for Mobilization of the Oppressed have facilitated the construction of 20,000 photovoltaic power stations across the country, with plans for further expansion in subsequent phases.

Renewable energy sources, including solar power, are steadily gaining prominence in Iran's energy landscape, with renewables currently accounting for nearly seven percent of the country's total electricity generation capacity. As Iran continues to prioritize sustainability and energy diversification, initiatives like the solar panel distribution project hold immense potential for driving socio-economic development and fostering resilience in nomadic communities across the nation.
