SOLON & Elco Establish Joint Venture for Solar Power Plants in Israel

Published on 6 Nov 2012

- Power plants with a total capacity of 8.5MW currently being implemented
- Participation in bids for a total of 200MW

SOLON Energy GmbH and the Israeli energy and technology company Elco have founded the joint venture SOLON Elco Renewables Ltd. The new company, located in Netanya near Tel Aviv, plans and builds solar power plants in Israel.

Elco is a subsidiary of Elektra. In this joint venture, Elco ensures access to the Israeli market. What is more, Elco specializes in the integration of energy sources directly into the high voltage network. This represents a significant competitive advantage in bids for systems in Israel, which, above 30MW, are directly integrated into the country’s high voltage network. SOLON contributes many years of experience in the planning and building of large solar power plants to the joint venture.

"Elco is a strong partner that is well positioned in the market and has an impeccable reputation," says Dr. Lars Podlowski, CTO of SOLON "We are taking advantage of this cooperation to increase our presence in Israel, and we are one of the few European companies to establish itself in the emerging Israeli market."

SOLON Elco Renewables Ltd. is already completing two projects with a total capacity of 8.5MW in the Israeli Kibbuzim Kramim und Idan. The company is participating in various bids for a further 200MW.
