Israel's Largest Solar Farm Now Online

solar

Earlier today, the largest solar power plant in Israel was connected to the grid. The 50 kW rooftop solar farm, located in Qazrin, was installed by Israeli renewable energy company Solar IT.

The Suntech solar-powered installation will produce 85,000 kWh of electricity. Suntech plans on installing an even larger installation in Southern Israel at at an unspecified date.

The new plant is part of Israel’s plan to produce 20 percent of its electricity using renewables by 2020. Considering the country’s abundant sunshine, I certainly hope that the majority of its renewable energy will be solar-based.
