Conversion of Israeli Road Junctions into Solar Power Plants

The Ministry of Transport has recently announced that Doral Energy company has been selected as the winner of the tender for the construction of photovoltaic power plants on the territory of highway interchanges owned by Netivei Israel.

Netivei Israel, a state-owned company, currently owns over 5,000 dunams of land that cannot be used for commercial purposes due to lack of access. In an effort to utilize this land effectively, it was decided to construct solar power plants on these areas. The first stage 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. Doral Energy will receive a license to build and maintain the power plants for 25 years.

It is worth noting that 14 years ago, Netivei Israel considered using wind turbines to generate electricity using road infrastructure but this idea was not implemented.
