The main solar project coming to Israel

On Thursday, 11 bids were received from local and international groups for the country’s 300 megawatt solar power plant.

The farm is intended to work with a power plant near Dimona.

The solar farm will cover more than 1,200 hectares (3,000 ha) to generate photovoltaic electricity, and some of the energy will be returned to the warehouse. This is expected to be the largest solar farm in Israel and one of the largest in the world. It is expected to help the country achieve its goal of transitioning to renewable energy by 2030.

The project will be implemented in a private and public-private partnership (PPP) scheme, with the company responsible for the project responsible for planning, financing and operating the solar farm for 25 years, after which the farm will be returned to state ownership.

The bid includes plans to store energy in large batteries, making it the largest and most energy-intensive use in Israel. In this way, electricity can be used at night when there is a high demand.

The solar farm is scheduled to open by the end of 2024 and will reduce the use of electricity generated by greenhouse gases during the day.

The committee is expected to select a proposal in the next three months.

“This is an innovation project in the Israeli energy market,” said Finance Minister Avigdor Lieberman. “The success of this project will pave the way for the implementation of additional technologies and major storage facilities that will replace the pollution power plants in the future and help the state’s goal of renewable energy.

“The Ministry of Finance continues to promote national infrastructure projects to address the economic crisis caused by COVID-19.

“The Israeli government must be involved in the fight against climate change in all areas,” said Energy Minister Karin Elharar. This is the policy that I am promoting as the Minister of Energy and the policy that is required of all of us.
