In April, Iran unveiled a new solar energy facility in the capital, Tehran, which aims to provide 200 megawatts of power to the country’s 5 million people.
It is the first solar energy project outside of the countrys vast desert region.
The plant was built with $1 billion in state funds, according to a statement by Iran’s Ministry of Energy.
It was built in cooperation with local private companies and the country is now producing 100 megawatts per day, according the statement.
Iran has been working on building solar energy projects in the country for the past two years, according a report by the Institute for the Study of War.
But some say the facility is only a test.
According to a report published in March by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, solar energy is not a viable option for Iran.
Solar energy is expensive, unreliable and, according in part to the report, “a non-starter in the current economic climate,” the Center said.
The solar energy in Iran is only used to power the country and is not generating enough electricity to supply the nation.
According to the Iranian government, its solar energy generation is about 30 percent of total energy.
Solar energy in Tehran, the country where Iran is located, is also only used for producing electricity, according Reuters.
The government does not have a solar energy grid, according Iran’s news agency IRNA.
