Ben-Shach said, “This agreement is an important step in Global Power’s development. It is also a new basis for gas purchase agreements, which allow high certainty in predicting the price of natural gas in the medium and long term on one hand, while hedging the short and medium-term price of natural gas on the other hand. The use of power generated by small and mid-sized power stations allows large companies and enterprises to greatly reduce their energy costs, while providing greater flexibility in the electricity supply. Global Power has agreements to build power stations with leading Israeli companies as part of its relative advantage in building small and mid-sized power stations.
