Iran has added 464 megawatts (MW) to its electricity generation capacity by upgrading the gas units of power plants, announced the director general of the Research and Construction Department of Thermal Power Plants Holding Company (TPPH).
Plants are always swinging in the wing, which means they have to be pretty flexible. But they also have to be very strong not to break when flexing. On the other hand, plants also have to be pretty rigid to be able to stand upright and grow toward the sun. How do they manage it?
Iran exported 2,356 tons of cut flowers and ornamental plants, worth over $5.336 million, during the first three months of the current Iranian year (March 20-June 20), said the spokesman of the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration (IRICA).
Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian said that the Iranian government has added about 13,000 megawatts of electricity to the country’s grid over the past five years, showing a 25-percent increase year-on-year.
Solar panels might seem like they’re in direct competition with plants. One is catching sunlight to do photosynthesis, the other wants to take it to push electrons. Surely Highlander rules apply, and there can be only one on a plot of land, right?
