Israel is planning to put to tender a 500 megawatts (Mw) solar energy project, which would be the country’s largest, the Energy Ministry has said.
Plans for the photovoltaic field, which would be built by one or more groups near the southern Israeli town of Dimona, were approved by the government’s National Infrastructure Committee.
The project members still needed final endorsement from the government, the ministry said on Tuesday.
Most of the project will be put to tender by the start of 2020, the ministry said in a statement. It did not provide financial details.
