A glimpse of the historic power plant – Reading A – which is a 1938 structure earmarked for preservation. It is also the second steam-generated power plant built in pre-State Israel, established north of the Yarkon Estuary by Pinhas Rutenberg, the founder of the Israel Electric Corporation. A number of blueprints for the plant were prepared by different architects. The one that was actually built was chosen by Rutenberg himself, who supervised the construction. The power plant ensured an uninterrupted supply of electricity to the central and southern parts of the country, and was in use until 1972. During Israel`s War of Independence, the Hagana used the plant as an arms workshop and weapons cache. In 1997, the building was restored, including its original floor, turbines and boilers. The tall main space, which enjoys an abundance of natural sunlight, exudes grandeur and served for years as a gathering place for cultural and community events. The Electric Corporation is currently finalizing the plans for its preservation. The tours will be led by Michael Bixon, the former plant manager.
Participation in the tours is contingent on presenting an ID card and wearing flat, closed back shoes. The tours, open to people aged 12 and over, will last about 90 minutes.
