תחנת הכוח הראשונה בארץ ישראל ומשכן דירקטוריון חברת החשמל

המיסיון האנגלי הקים כאן ב-1856 חווה לדוגמא - "מודל פארם", שנועדה להקנות ליהודי יפו חינוך חקלאי. המוסד נסגר בשנת 1870.

החווה והקרקעות שבסביבתה נרכשו לאחר מלחמת העולם הראשונה, עם הרחבת היישוב היהודי באזור. עיריית תל-אביב העבירה לרשותו של פנחס רוטנברג, מייסד חברת החשמל, את בית החווה ועשרים דונם מאדמותיה ב-1922.
רוטנברג הקים באתר את תחנת הכוח הראשונה בארץ ישראל, שהחלה לספק חשמל ב-10 ביוני 1923. התחנה הופעלה בדיזל גנרטורים.

מבנה התחנה, שתוכנן על-ידי האדריכל יוסף ברלין, שוקם בידי חברת החשמל ב-1996 ובתוכו הותקנה תחנת מישנה. בית החווה ההיסטורי שופץ על-ידי חברת החשמל ב-1988, והוא משמש כמשכן של דירקטוריון החברה.

The first power station in Israel and the headquarters of the Israel Electric Corporation

The English Mission established here in 1856 an example farm, the "Farm Model," designed to give the Jews of Jaffa agricultural education. The institution was closed in 1870.

The farm and land in its vicinity were purchased after the First World War, with the expansion of the Jewish community in the area. The Tel Aviv municipality transferred the farmhouse and 20 dunams of its land in 1922 to Pinhas Rotenberg, the founder of the Israel Electric Corporation.
Rotenberg established the first power station in Israel, which began to supply electricity on June 10, 1923. The station was operated by diesel generators.

The building, designed by architect Joseph Berlin, was restored by the Israel Electric Corporation in 1996, and a secondary station was installed in it. The historic farmhouse was renovated by the Israel Electric Corporation in 1988 and serves as a residence for the company’s board of directors.
