At this site, the second steam-powered power plant was established in Eretz Israel. The station was established by Pinchas Rotenberg, the founder of the Electric Company.
The Reading A power plant was named after the second chairman of the IEC board, Lord Daniel Rufus Reading. The station began generating electricity as early as 1938 and ensured the regular supply of electricity to localities in the center and south of the country, during the Arab Revolt.
The site also served as a workshop and reservoir for the "Haganah" weapons hidden from the eyes of the British.
n 1953, the Reading B power plant was added to the site, and in 1970, Reading D also began operating.
In 1995, the IEC decided to preserve the Reading A building, which is one of the most important buildings in the history of modern architecture in the Land of Israel.
In 1997, the "Council for the Preservation of Heritage Sites in Israel" awarded a certificate of appreciation to the IEC for its activities for the preservation of power plant buildings in the country, including Reading A. The certificate was awarded to her by President Ezer Weizman.
