The Ministry of Transport has announced the winner of the tender for the construction of photovoltaic power plants on highway interchanges owned by Netivei Israel company. These areas were previously inaccessible due to lack of commercial purposes, so it was decided to utilize them for solar power plants.
The first stage of the project will involve equipping 13 junctions with photovoltaic elements, producing 85 megawatts of electricity. The selected junctions include Beit Kama, Gedera, Yagur, Neot Hovav, Sara, Rahat, HaZeitim, Adumim, Shimshon, Shaar HaGai, Dror, Raanana Darom and Jaljulia.
Notably, this is not Doral Energy’s first venture into renewable energy as they had considered using wind turbines to generate electricity using road infrastructure 14 years ago but that idea was not implemented.
