Enhancement of competition and reform in the electricity market

The Electricity Market Law, 1996, allows competition in the electricity market: encouraging the entrance of private electricity producers, removing barriers and facilitating regulatory conditions aimed at accelerating construction of power plants by private electricity producers. Rotem’s electricity generation license was granted in 2013, for a period of 30 years for the production and sale of electricity (the first major, private power plant in Israel). Since then, other large power plants have been set up, and the market share of private producers represents over 30% of the electricity market.

O.P.C. Energy is the first private electricity company in Israel.
The Company generates about 5% of the electricity consumption in Israel.

The Company was incorporated in 2010 and operates in the field of power generation and supply, including development, construction and operation of power plants, as well as power generation and suppling to private customers and to Israel Electricity Corporation (IEC).

The Company owns two power plants sites, “Rotem”, which began commercial operation on 2013, with an installed capacity of 466 MW, and “Hadera”, which began operations in July 2020 ; this power plant uses cogeneration technology, with an installed capacity of 144 MW

O.P.C. Energy is acting to develop additional natural gas power plants.
One is located near the Plugot Junction, Zomet, and is a conventional, open cycle power plant with a capacity of 396 MW.

OPC’s electricity is environmentally friendly and produced with maximal energy efficiency. The power plants’ equipment is innovative and based on the world’s most advanced technologies, with professional, experienced personnel.

O.P.C consumers benefit from availability, reliability, professional and high quality service.
