Iran is scheduled to build its first seven-star hotel with a supplementary solar energy system on Kish Island over the next two years, Press TV reported.
The two-year project with an estimated budget of 520,000,000
dollars is aimed at completing the hotel in Kish in the southern province of
Hormozgan by 2009-10.
"Generating electricity from the sun is a very expensive project but I mean to bring this technology to Iran," said Hossein Sabet investor of the solar hotel.
"Now that other countries are imposing sanctions on Iran, building such a hotel is an important step in tourism development," concluded Sabet, manager of Kish Island's Dariush Grand Hotel.
