Israel Building World's Tallest Solar Tower

In an effort to increase natural energy sources, Israeli innovators are constructing a very tall solar tower - which will be about 787 feet high - and will supply clean energy to over 120,000 homes each year. We can't wait to see the tower once it's finally constructed!

A 240 meter (787-foot) solar tower is currently being built by the Israel-based Megalim Solar Power, which when completed will generate up to 121 megawatts of power, providing about 1% of Israel's electricity consumption. Construction completion is expected in late 2017. Israel is aiming to generate 10% of its energy needs from renewable sources by 2020. With its ample sunshine, Israel has excellent potential to tap into solar as a renewable energy source.
