MK Uri Ariel (National Union), who is actively promoting the establishment of a big wind turbine farm in the Golan, took a tour on Sunday of the area with the Golan Heights Regional Council chairman, the Israel Electric Corporation chairman and representatives from the Defense Ministry, his office reported on Tuesday.

The preferred place to establish the farm, which would contain more than 50 turbines is in agricultural land in Emek HaBacha, and is expected to be constructed within a few years, his office said. The potential total output for the area could be up to 350 megawatts in wind power, along with 200 megawatts in solar photovoltaic systems as well, according to Ariel's spokesman.

"I am confident and certain that ultimately the project will take shape and that we will begin producing significant quantities of green energy," Ariel said.
