IEC CEO: We'll avoid power cuts
Eli Glickman: We've increased the reserves. Israel is a leader in terms of reliable power.
Last Thursday, a breakdown at one of the 575-megawatt generating units at the Rothenberg Power Station in Ashkelon caused power outages at several locations around the country, and forced IEC to declare an Orange Alert. Last night, IEC announced that it expected record electricity demand of 11,200 megawatts during Sunday afternoon.
Glickman added, "We had some breakdowns that were unrelated to last week's load. It was unrelated to the shortage of reserves."
“IDF Radio": It seems that a lot depends on the public.
Glickman: "The State of Israel is a leader in terms of reliable power delivery. The level of service here is of the highest level, and that is good. I wish to praise the public's response on Thursday. Every degree of air conditioning saves 5% of electricity, and today, too, and in the days ahead, we must continue to conserve."
