aleo solar AG today announced that it will supply solar modules for several solar power facilities in Israel
This year, the sun-soaked Mediterranean country will see the installation of aleo modules with a rated output of more than 200 kilowatts. A total of 227 aleo S_18 modules were installed in a 50 kilowatts solar power plant for a poultry farm in Moshav Gan HaShomron, which was connected to the grid in late October.
The rooftop power plant in Moshav Gan HaShomron was installed by Solenergy. aleo solar’s local partner will also install three more photovoltaic power plants using aleo modules before the end of the year. “We chose aleo modules because of their extraordinarily high yields and reliability,” explains Amit Leventer, Solenergy’s CEO. “These modules ensure that we can meet our own high standards of quality for photovoltaic installations.”
The photovoltaics market in Israel is gathering pace, following the introduction of a feed-in subsidy last year. Operators of rooftop systems with a rated output under 50 kilowatts receive the equivalent of EUR 0.36 per kilowatt-hour over a period of 20 years. “In many places in Israel, annual insolation exceeds 2,000 kilowatt-hours per square meter,” comments Pascal Bertolone, Director Market Development at aleo solar AG. “Insolation levels as high as these make Israel’s feed-in subsidy extremely attractive.” The module specialist aleo solar is therefore expecting strong growth in the Israeli photovoltaics market.
