Governor Northam Announces Israeli Renewable Energy Company to Establish U.S. Headquarters in Arlington
Energix Renewable Energies to invest $1.1 million in U.S. subsidiary base, creating 33 new jobs
RICHMOND—Governor Ralph Northam today announced that Energix Renewable Energies Ltd., one of Israel’s largest renewable energy companies, will invest $1.1 million to establish its U.S. subsidiary headquarters in Arlington County. Virginia successfully competed with North Carolina and South Carolina for the project, which will create 33 new jobs. Governor Northam met with Energix executives in Israel during an international trade and marketing mission in November 2019.
Energix’s U.S. headquarters will be based at 2311 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, a building owned by a fellow subsidiary of Energix parent company Alony-Hetz. In Virginia, Energix has three projects in commercial operation that represent approximately $130 million in investment, six projects ready for construction, and more in development. The company also has projects in development in Arizona and West Virginia. Energix plans to begin construction of its next six projects with an estimated additional investment of $200 million this year.
“Virginia’s competitive advantages continue to attract international companies seeking to establish their U.S. headquarters, and we are pleased to welcome Energix to Arlington County,” said Governor Northam. “Energix has an impressive portfolio of projects in the United States, and we are confident that the company will contribute to our Clean Energy Virginia initiative to create good-paying jobs and drive new investment in this burgeoning industry.”Read More
