The Israeli Energy and Infrastructure Ministry has been mulling to enforce a sustainable energy transition plan to revamp the energy network in the Gaza border in South-Western Israel. This region has faced the brunt of several air attacks.
Israeli Energy and Infrastructure Ministry recently announced the move. The plan aims to accelerate the transition to sustainable energy in both household and business sectors in the Gaza Envelope area, located seven kilometers from the Gaza border in South-West Israel.
As per reports, this is a part of the government’s effort to strengthen civil resilience in a region that has long experienced rocket and missile attacks. The plan is estimated to have secured 5 million shekels ($1.38 million).
This plan aims to promote energy efficiency, and facilities will be designed to optimize solar power generation in agricultural areas in border towns. There are also plans to establish new facilities to upgrade the electricity network in the area.
