We’ve Got the Power

And are ready to empower it


In 2007, Arava Power Company pioneered its vision to breathe new life into the southern wilderness by bringing solar power to Israel. At a time when renewable energy was an entirely foreign concept to most, Arava Power took it upon itself to develop Israel’s first utility-scale photovoltaics, which sparked an entire industry into existence.

Arava Power’s profound expertise and years of experience have allowed it to build one of the most profitable portfolios in the industry, maintaining and improving performance through excellence in development, technological innovation and advanced asset management operations.

Today, Arava Power holds a multi-GW development portfolio in Israel and the U.S, across utility scale PV and BESS, Agrivoltaic and Distributed Energy Systems.

Arava Power has been at the forefront of the energy transition, delivering on the promise of clean, sustainable energy to power our planet’s future.

Creating lasting value for society


Arava Power is committed to corporate social responsibility. One of the mitzvot of the Torah is the mitzvah of Pe’ah . According to this mitzvah, the four corners of the field should be left untouched by harvester and saved for the poor to glean. This rule is thousands of years old and still just as relevant and  important today, Arava Power gives the Pe’ah law a modern twist, the company is dedicating the four corners of its PV solar fields to four different non-profit organizations that will benefit from the funds each corner makes for the next 20 years.

Enclosed is part of organizations Arava Power donates to:

  • A Jewish Heart for Africa an organization that uses Israeli solar systems to provide electricity to various buildings in Africa, including schools, clinics, orphanages and, likewise, water pumps
  • Bostan Non-governmental organization that works closely with the Bedouin in the Negev for a fair distribution of allocations, which includes allocations related to renewable energy combined with a concern for social and environmental justice for all people in the region
