Few things:
1. Cry me a river, nobody promised anyone anything.
Do they seriously expect that these new power plants will be built on Mars or maybe underwater?

2. The journalists are as usual doing a sloppy job, no station is powered by "home gas".
Gas used at homes for cooking is completely different from the gas used in power plants.
Is it so hard to state facts?

3. Whats her name? Ifergan is uneducated simpletone who has no clue what she is talking about.
And to answer her question, yes coal, oil, gas and other fossil fuels are completely natural.
Nothing "synthetic" or "man made" in them.
Not that there is anything wrong with man made things, just stating facts.
Again at this day and age I expect people to have at least some basic education and not to sound like cavemen.
Is it too much to ask?

maybe the new power plant can be next to savyon, theres still open space left.
also one next to herzliya pituah, theres space there too. lets see how that goes.
we all know why they choose cities like k. gat. hope they succeed to cancel it.

I am open to suggestions, where you propose this power plant should be.
And yes they chose Kiryat Gat, because land is cheap there, so what?
Would you rather see this built next to Savyon (like you proposed) which would double the cost of construction (if not more) which would then be reflected in your electric bill?
At any rate, I understand that you have no objections to the rest of my post and the journalists and whoever that woman is, in the clip being uneducated clueless morons?

There's a working natural gas power plant within short walking distance of Ramat Aviv Gimel, so what? Instead of fighting against a project that brings employment they should fight to make sure it follows the strictest environmental regulations, like in TLV.

nothing to do with price
they choose locations where they think people wont have the ability to do a legal battle
They choost locations where people won't be able to sue the government for damages. E.g. if there are existing homes in an area, and the government approves a new power station there after the houses have already been purchased- the residents will be able to sue the government since their properties lost value due to the new power station. However, in this case- the power stationhad been approved before the apartments, so whoever purchased an apartment there- should have already known about the nearby, approved power station.
Anyway, regarding power station locations- the Orot Rabin power station, which is one of the biggest polluters in Israel (its capacity is about 7-8 times bigger than the new power station near Kiryat Gat and it's coal-powered) is located oly 2 KMs from Caesarea. Reading Power Station is located just 500 meters from Kochav HaTzafon. So it's not like power stations are not located near richer Israeli cities/towns.

Why not build new power stations in the Negev where densities are lower?

Anyway, the developments look very nice for a former development town. Are these in the new suburbs built to the North of old Kiryat Gat?
