Working with its local partner, Solenergy, aleo solar will be supplying solar modules for numerous solar power facilities in Israel. This year, the company will have provided more than 200kW of their modules to various projects in the country. One of the more recent aleo solar projects in Israel was a 50kW poultry farm in Moshav Gan HaShomrom. The project was connected to the grid in late October and aleo supplied 227 of its S_18 modules.
“We chose aleo modules because of their extraordinarily high yields and reliability,” explained Amit Leventer, Solenergy’s CEO. “These modules ensure that we can meet our own high standards of quality for photovoltaic installations.”
The rooftop installation in Moshav Gan HaShomrom was put in place by Solenergy and with their help aleo will install three more photovoltaic power plants before the end of this year. Israel has seen a recent boom in the PV sector since the introduction of a feed-in subsidy last year. Operators of rooftop solar systems with a rated output of under 50kW receive the equivalent of EUR 0.36 ($.53) per kilowatt-hour over 20 years. Due to the increase in the photovoltaic industry, aleo is confident with its move into the Israel market.
“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.”
