The Public Authority Utility (PAU) was created in 1996 to fix electricity tariffs for the Israel Electricity Company and monitor its costs. The Authority also fixes premiums and feed-in-tariffs for renewable energy sourced electricity.
About 90% of domestic residences in Israel make use of solar water heating systems, which satisfies some 4% of the countrys total energy demand.
The PAU established new Solar PV and Wind feed-in-tariffs (FITs) in 2009.
1) The Ministry of National Infrastructure has set up a feed-in tariff for small and medium wind installations:
These tariffs will be reduced by 2% each year from 2011, are valid for up to a national aggregate capacity of 30 MW and guaranteed for 20 years.
2) The Ministry of National Infrastructure also set up a feed-in tariff for residential and industrial solar photovoltaic installations:
The feed-in tariff was closed for new applications in 2013 and replaced by a net-metering system.
