First solar plant hooked up to grid in Dan region

The Sunday solar power company hooked up the first solar energy plant in the Dan Region to the national electricity grid on Monday. The 50KW photovoltaic system was erected on the roof of the municipal water offices in Kiryat Ono. The company hopes to expand its panels to other municipal building roofs such as schools and community centers. The company also recently signed an agreement with Kibbutz Reim in the Negev to turn it into a solar community. Solar panels will be erected on all the buildings to power the kibbutz and the excess sold to the national grid.
