  • 4. Transmission system Single state-owned licensee (INGL) with a single mission in the energy sector Full open-access from day one Uniform regulated tariff (independent of distance) System is almost entirely installed Connection facilities are paid directly by the consumers Rated AA by S&P ISRAEL 4
  • 5. Distribution systemDistribution Networks - low pressure(up to 16 Bars)The Country was divided into 6Distribution geographical Regions,based on economic parameters.Licensees from the private sector areselected through a tender processinitiated by the government.First 3 licenses were granted(Central, Negev and South regions);2 additional tenders were published inSeptember 2012 (For the northernregion)Investment in a single distribution 5network is estimated as $25M - $40M.
