Min. of Energy Regulation 100/20/36776/94 dated October 21 2015 on ‘conditions of providing power for end users in generation tariffs (industry and mine) for regional power companies through contracts with non-state generator companies’ has facilitated power transfer. Drawing upon regulation above, SANA has worked ways to directly provide power for major customers. Transfer, usually as a bilateral agreement, gives customers to freely negotiate energy prices, volume, payment methods, etc. with major private power companies.
Advantages provided by direct power buyout are as follow:
• Reduced power buyout hidden costs
• In-advance purchase of reliable power
• Long-term sale agreement
• Providing power in exclusive offers
• Guarantee of no blackouts
• After-sale supports and maintenance services for transfer grids and relay stations
Sale agreement or guaranteed conversion deals
TAVANIR is the single major customer of SANA for guaranteed power purchase. However, the company would sign sale agreements with other customers as guaranteed sales.
Electricity supply in Iran’s market
SANA draws upon its indigenous capacities and expertise in Iranian wholesale power market.
Sales in Tehran Energy Exchange Market and other markets
Managing power in Energy Exchange Market and other markets would help companies in finding most fitting prices, best participation and withdrawal points in the market and in optimizing power plants and distributing companies’ profits. SANA has supplied power to Energy Exchange Market through its subsidiaries acting in standard parallel method.
Retail power trade
Tavanir is recognized as the main guaranteed customer for power produced by Sana power plants. However, the company is ready to sign guaranteed sale contracts with other applicants as well.
In case necessary conditions meet, SANA has plans to extend its markets to neighboring countries and the region as well.
