Penny's Bay Power Station is a support facility in CLP's generating system. Located in the eastern part of Lantau Island, the station has three simple cycle gas turbines that run on ultra low-sulphur diesel and can be started in just twelve minutes. This rapid-response mechanism is available as a backup in the possible (although unlikely) event of interruptions or setbacks on CLP’s system, or to meet short-duration peak demands.

Penny’s Bay is connected to the local 132kV transmission network on Lantau Island and then to CLP’s main grid, through a submarine cable extending to the New Territories.
