Doral Energy of Israel, an alternative energy developer with major solar power projects and technologies, has broken ground on what will be the largest solar power field in America. Located in Indiana, the Mammoth Solar project will produce 1.3 gigawatts of clean, solar energy.
Mammoth Solar will cost about $1.5 billion and is expected to provide clean energy for about 200,000 homes. It should be completed by the summer of 2023.
Israel’s Ambassador to the US and the UN Gilad Erdan attended the groundbreaking ceremony. Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, the Consul General of Israel to the Midwest Yinam Cohen and co-founders of Doral Energy Nick Cohen and Dori Davidovitz also attended.
