Project Description: Located off Sai Kung and without connection to the power grid, the Island used to rely on intermittent running of diesel generators for a few hours daily to provide electricity. Being Hong Kong’s first commercial-scale standalone renewable energy (RE) supply system, the Town Island Power Station generates electricity up to 200kW to power the drug rehabilitation centre on the Island. Founded on a belief that “renewal” is vital to the sustainability of mankind, CLP sees its roles beyond supplying cleaner electricity, but also in making life better for society from one generation to the next.

Aiming to “get the best out of heaven and earth” and “harmonise mankind’s demand”, the project was engineered to optimise the use of solar, wind and land resources to meet the basic energy needs of the inhabitants of the Island. CLP engineers continue their association with the Island as volunteering electrician-class tutors to better equip the inmates for a new life upon returning to the community.
