An agricultural co-op, owned by Israeli kibbutzim, is trying to bring an electric car sharing service to rural areas in Israel, according to CTech, a technology new site by Calcalist.
Cars will be set up in multiple kibbutzim by April and residents will be able to rent the car by the hour, according to the report. If the pilot program succeeds, more kibbutzim will join.
“Setting up the charging infrastructure in kibbutzim across Israel will allow kibbutzim residents as well as the general public to travel longer distances using electric power, thus reducing pollution,” Hen Melamed, CEO of Meshek Energy, said in an interview with Calcalist.
Meshek Energy is the company that will set up and run the charging stations.
