National Infrastructures Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer has approved the addition of the Alon Tavor project to the emergency electricity plan, the ministry announced Monday. The combined-cycle turbine would produce another 250 megawatts by 2013, with a phase two of an additional 125 MW in the future. The electricity emergency plan was approved in September 2007 to cover a projected reduced reserve capacity from 2008-2012. The lack of reserves came about because of a delay in the integration of new sources of electricity from Israel Electric and private companies, ministry officials said.
