PM: Onshore Gas Will Lower Electric Costs


Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu has welcomed the approval of the National Council for Planning and Construction to build both onshore and offshore natural gas facilities.   

“This is another step toward exploiting this important natural resource for the benefit of the Israeli economy.  The faster we can put this into action, the faster we will be able to pass on savings in electricity to whole of Israeli society. I call upon all parties involved to expedite the procedure so that we can all benefit from this natural treasure as soon as possible,” the Prime Minister said.
