Power Outages Reported Across Israel

Israel Electric Corporation report most likely indicates that the fault was in the electricity's transmission, and not in its production.

Short power outages were reported Tuesday throughout Israel, most likely the result of a technical issue in two of Israel's southern power plants.

The Israel Electric Corporation said the technical issue has been fixed, and that it worked to reduce pressure on the remaining power plants by managing energy consumption more efficiently.

The technical faults occurred at the Rotenberg power station in Ashkelon and the nearby Dorad power station. The IEC's report that attributed the fault to two separate power production plants in the same area but which are separately owned most likely indicates that the fault was in the electricity's transmission, and not in its production.
