  • 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?
