Good, but who will *really* pay for it?

The palestinian government plans to build an electrical facility in Egypt that will allow it to take power from Egypt, weaning itself off Israeli electricity, a palestinian official said on Sunday. Suleiman Abu Samhadana, palestinian undersecretary for energy and electricity, told reporters at the Rafah border crossing in northern Egypt that authorities in Cairo had approved the project, which would cost e15million and cut the Gaza Strip’s electricity bill by 44 percent. He said the Kuwait Development Fund would bear the costs of the plant, which would be built five km (three miles) into Egypt from the Egypt-Gaza border.
