Malfunction at the Electric Company

The Israel Electric Company reported, Friday, that a generating unit stopped functioning at the Gezer power station in Hadera, in the northern part of central Israel, due to a malfunction.

The utility said repairs to the generator will take a few months, at an estimated cost of 15 million Euros. While the unit is down, the company will have to burn more expensive alternate fuels.
