TEL AVIV, Israel, June 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enlight Renewable Energy (“Enlight”) (NASDAQ: ENLT), a leading global renewable energy platform, has entered into a corporate power purchase agreement (“PPA”) with Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), a leading software and services provider to media and communication companies. Under the agreement, Enlight will supply green energy to Amdocs to power the software giant’s new office campus in Israel.
The PPA, which extends for 12 years, is expected to account for 100% of the energy consumption at Amdocs’ new innovative campus “Amdocs Park,” which spans dozens of acres. The electricity, which will be sold at a competitive price, will be sourced from Enlight’s solar and storage facilities currently under construction in Israel (Solar + Storage Cluster 2). The agreement marks the first corporate PPA Enlight has signed as part of the new market regulation in Israel. The regulation constitutes a revolution in the Israeli electricity market, and it enables green power producers such as Enlight, and large electricity consumers such as Amdocs, to enter into direct power purchase agreements. The move to corporate PPAs is expected to accelerate the energy transition across the Israeli economy.
The new agreement to acquire green power fits into Amdocs’ long-term environmental strategy. In addition to being powered solely by renewable sources, the new campus stands to benefit from a LEED GOLD certification, minimizing energy and water consumption and thereby reducing the environmental footprint associated with the construction and operation of the campus.
Gilad Yavetz, Co-Founder and CEO of Enlight Renewable Energy: “We have entered a new era in Israel of solar generation, storage, and electricity supply through corporate PPAs to large customers. This revolution has occurred thanks to the de-regulation process of the Israeli Electricity Authority. The process will enable Enlight to lower energy costs for customers, who until now have relied on coal and gas generated electricity, which was both polluting and more expensive. Moreover, the de-regulation will significantly propel our customers towards their net zero goals, while increasing Enlight’s return on its projects. This is the first milestone in a series of similar PPAs which are currently under negotiation.”
Chen Furman, Head of Global Services Operations at Amdocs: “As part of Amdocs’ global strategy for environmental protection and reducing the company’s carbon footprint, we are excited about another significant step in Amdocs Park’s transition to renewable energy. Amdocs Park is one of the most innovative and advanced campuses in Israel and around the world, and it is natural that the energy sources fed to the campus will be from renewable energy sources. We are pleased to work with Enlight and are proud to be a pioneer in the Israeli high-tech sector to take this step.”
