Power China to build 2000 MW of solar power plants in Iraq

By the completion of its first phase, the project will help generate 750 MW of electricity. The main power grid in Iraq experiences daily outages of up to several hours. Power shortages are expected to worsen with temperatures often reaching 50 degrees Celsius during the summer, increasing the use of air conditioning by households.
