This week, Israel’s biggest solar power station was inaugurated in Katsrin, a place otherwise known for its archaeological sites. Generating 85,000 KWH per year, the power station represents a milestone in Israel’s adoption of alternative energy, which until now had hardly been a soaring success. But it also represents something else: A partnership between Israel and China.
The power station has been integrated into Israel’s national grid and will be accompanied by incentives for consumers.
State officials of both countries have expressed hope that cooperation between Israel and China in renewable energies will continue. Suntech, for its part, is planning to build another solar power plant in southern Israel.
