Tehran is facing a daily power outage that lasts for hours.
The Shargh daily reports that the first days of summer in Tehran have been accompanied by repeated power outages lasting four to five hours.
The head of Tehran’s Power Distribution Company, Mohammad Hashemi, confirmed the power outages in an interview with Shargh and called for cooperation from the public to prevent repeated outages.
"High usage due to the heat leads to rising temperatures in the transformer oil, which forces the system to shut down so it can cool down,” he said.
He called for energy conservation and a reduction in power usage between 11 AM and 3 PM as well as between 9 PM and 11 PM in order to stabilize the power distribution system.
