Israel Joins U.S. to Bring Solar Power to Africa – Max Schindler (Jerusalem Post)
Israel will join the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Power Africa program, connecting millions of people to electricity with renewable energy projects.
Israeli companies will now be eligible to receive USAID grants to penetrate the African market.
Israeli companies will be able to negotiate contracts in countries where there is no official Israeli presence, advancing major clean-energy projects and counterbalancing Chinese solar companies.
Two out of three people in sub-Saharan Africa lack reliable electricity.
