Iran Produces Hybrid Solar Panels for Domestic Use

Iran Front Page - Wednesday 13th March, 2019

Scientists at an Iranian knowledge-based firm have managed to produce the countrys first hybrid solar panels used for domestic purpose.

The new system has been produced with the main goal of reducing the power costs of Iranian families.

Designed especially for household use, the hybrid solar panel decreases to zero the power cost and significantly decreases the gas cost of Iranian families, a report by Mehr news agency said.

The new system serves as an emergency power reservoir for any building during the daylight. It also provides the buildings light during night in case of a blackout.

With the first largest gas reserves and the fourth oil reserves in the world, Iran is a global hydrocarbons giant. The Iranian policymakers, however, are very eager to develop renewable energies to increase energy security, reduce the countrys dependence on hydrocarbons, and realize its growth targets in electricity demand.

Irans topography is quite appropriate for renewables and that makes the fulfilment of these objectives pretty realistic and probable for the Iranian government.

Iran enjoys a great diversity in its climate and vast arid regions. The southern, north-western and south-eastern regions of Iran receive around 300 days of sun per year, and thus are uniquely suitable for solar energy production.

According to thedata released by Irans Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology, the government has given particular priority to the countrys central regions due to its climate and proximity to the national power grid.
