The Ministry of Transport has announced the winner of the tender for the construction of photovoltaic power plants on highway interchanges owned by Netivei Israel, a state-owned company responsible for these areas. These 5,000 dunams of land cannot be used for commercial purposes due to lack of access and have been designated for solar power plant construction. The first stage will involve equipping 13 junctions with photovoltaic elements, producing 85 megawatts of electricity. Doral Energy has been selected as the winner and will receive a license to build and maintain the power plants for 25 years. Notably, Netivei Israel had previously considered using wind turbines to generate electricity using road infrastructure but did not implement this idea 14 years ago.
