Israel plans expansion of solar power
Israel is planning an expansion of its solar-generated electricity with preparations to bring the first of more than 40 new solar plants onto the grid this summer.
Reprinted from jweekly.com
Arava Power is building the plants, including a $30 million, 20-acre Ketura Sun solar field in Israel’s scorching Negev desert, which will begin providing electricity to some 1,000 residents this summer.
Israel is pushing to become a world leader in alternative energy, with the government backing cutting-edge technologies and setting a goal to have 10 percent of its electricity generated by alternative means by 2020.
Right now, Israel depends almost entirely on imported coal and natural gas for its energy

An American energy expert is predicting an “oil and gas rush” in Israel. Wouldn’t THAT be something!…Especially after Israel gave up the huge oil reserves in the Sinai in the trade of land for peace with Egypt, even though it was Israel that won the war. (What other country would have made THAT sacrifice in the interest of peace, by the way?)
How cool would an energy-independent Israel be?…
The Messiah will probably not be far behind…
A top US energy industry expert believes Israel is going to soon experience an “oil and gas rush” by major Western energy development companies.
Reprinted from Israeltoday.co.il
Speaking to the Israeli financial newspaper Globes, Fred Zeidman said the recent discovery of a massive natural gas field off Israel’s Mediterranean coast had drawn the attention of every major Western energy company.
Israeli companies Delek and Isramco have already tapped the natural gas field, together with British energy giant Noble Energy. Zeidman noted that quite often, “as soon as Noble goes to a place, many other companies follow in its wake.”
That could mean an enormous economic boom for Israel and its transformation overnight into a major international energy exporter.
The natural gas field in the Levant Basin (the western Mediterranean) is estimated to hold 122 trillion cubic feet of recoverable natural gas, making it the largest natural gas resource ever found. The area is also believed to contain at least 1.7 billion barrels of recoverable oil.
