Renewable power plants with a total capacity of 13,000 megawatts are under construction in Iran, including a 780-megawatt plant being built in the southeastern Sistan and Baluchestan province, an official said.

According to The Iran Project, Alireza Parandeh Motlaq, the deputy head of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Organization of Iran (SATBA) for technical and engineering affairs, stated that Sistan and Baluchestan is one of the richest provinces in the country in the field of renewable energies and enjoys high capabilities in different sectors including wind energy and geothermal energy.

Currently, there is a 60-megawatt renewable power plant installed in Sistan and Baluchestan province, including a 10-megawatt unit that had been installed in the Zahedan region and a 50-megawatt unit constructed in the northern part of the province in recent years.

Parandeh Motlaq pointed to the high advantages of the generation of wind energy in the Mil Nader region, the northern part of Sistan and Baluchestan, where a 50-megawatt wind power plant has been installed and is generating 210,000 megawatts/hour of electricity.

He went on to say that the wind energy generated in Sistan and Baluchestan province not only can meet the electricity demand of this southern province, but also there is the possibility of exporting the electricity to neighboring Afghanistan.
