Iran’s newly opened Mokran Solar Power Plants Complex is now the country’s largest solar plant. 

The plant was constructed in the eastern province of Kerman within six months and has an operating capacity of 20 megawatts. 

The complex has been built with a total number of 76,912 solar panels, each producing 260 watts in an area of 44 hectares.


With over 300 sunny days and an average of 2800 hours of sunshine, Iran is considered one of the best countries for producing and using solar energy.
