Iran Solar Potential

 

According to international standards, the use of solar energy models such as solar collectors or photovoltaic systems is bankable and cost-effective if the average solar energy of the day is higher than 3.5 kWh per square meter (3500 watts per hour).

In many parts of Iran, the solar energy is much higher than the international average, and the average solar radiation is about 4.5 kilowatt hours per square meter.

Having about 300 sunny days a year and an average solar energy radiation of about 4.5 kWh per square meter, Iran is among the best in the world in terms of solar energy potential.
