Conversion of Israeli Road Junctions into Solar Power Plants

The Ministry of Transport has announced the selection of Doral Energy as the winner of the tender for the construction of photovoltaic power plants on the territory of highway interchanges under Netivei Israel’s responsibility. These solar power plants will be built on more than 5,000 dunams of land owned by Netivei Israel that cannot be used for commercial purposes due to lack of access.

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 these power plants for 25 years.

Notably, 14 years ago Netivei Israel (then called MAAC) considered using wind turbines to generate electricity using road infrastructure but this idea was not implemented.
