    Did you know?

  • CLP's electricity supply reliability exceeds 99.999% - among the world's best!
  • Total power-interruption time experienced by our customers is much less than that in other major cities such as New York, Sydney and London.
  • Hong Kong's airport is one of the busiest in the world. Imagine what would happen if there was a power outage!

    Did you know?

  • Natural gas outperforms coal in terms of yielding lower emissions (with about half the CO2, a quarter of the NOx, and nearly no SO2 and particulates), but involves a significantly higher power generation cost.

    Did you know?

  • Natural gas does not spill or radiate. If an event occurs, causing its release, it simply and safely dissipates into the atmosphere.
  • To generate the same amount of electricity produced with 12g of uranium would require 70m3 of natural gas, or 90kg of oil, or 140kg of coal, or a 40m2 wind farm to run for a whole year.

    Did you know?

  • CLP's tariff in Hong Kong is just half that of London.
  • Manila's tariff is also double that of CLP's tariff in Hong Kong.
  • CLP's Hong Kong tariff is one-third that of Berlin.
  • Rome's tariff is almost three times higher than CLP's in Hong Kong.
  • Sydney's tariff is almost three times higher than CLP's in Hong Kong.

IMPACTS
  • Price
    More expensive than coal and nuclear energy at the moment, but its price may change in the future.
  • Environment
    Gas is the least-emitting fossil fuel.
  • Reliability
    Proven record of reliability
  • Public Perception
    No specific safety risks, but high fuel costs are a concern.
