Our History

Eilat-Eilot was established in 2006, and was then a division within the Eilot Regional Council. The regional council sought to develop the field of clean energy, which was then an emerging market, to generate revenue for the region and create jobs. Later, Eilat-Eilot set out on an independent path as a non-profit organization.

The original ‘Sun Valley’ vision was dreamt by our beloved Brian Medwood (1957 – 2002). Medwood was a clean energy pioneer and we have dedicated a page to his honor.
