Economic possibility assessment of creating wind power stations at Soltanieh zone of Zanjan province



Due to increasingly expansion of energy consumption and also decreasing and tendency towards
ending fossil energy reserves, the current energy cycle needs to use alternative energy specially
wind energy, because it’s considerably cheaper than other recycling sources. The present research
investigates possibility of creating wind Power Station economically at Soltanieh zone of Zanajn
province regarding economical perspectives. Cost of investment and other costs and also
environmental effects, were assessed economically by considering annual obtained energy rate.
Several scenarios were investigated; complete price of energy in every kW per hour at each
scenario was calculated and compared with other sources of electricity energy generation
especially fossil power stations. By considering obtained results, it’s expected that creating wind
power station at Soltanieh zone has yielded economical benefits.
