Enlight Renewable Energy has secured approval for commercial operation for a wind farm in Israel.
Genesis Wind was connected to Israel’s electricity grid in June 2023 and began commercial operations on 15 October, initially using 34 of 39 turbines comprising a generation capacity of 180MW.
The wind farm’s total capacity is 207MW.
Gilad Yavetz, CEO of Enlight, said: “Despite the tragic events in Israel during the past week, the company is continuing to operate normally.
“After years of hard work, the vision has now become a reality, as the largest renewable energy project in Israel commences commercial operation.
“We see Genesis Wind as a major step in the Golan Heights, amongst the additional projects that we plan to develop in the region.”
