The electricity charge of Power Assets Holdings Limited was increased when China Light and Power (CLP) was decreased. The inflation of electricity charge becomes a heavy burden on many households as Power Assets Holdings Limited provides electricity for Hong Kong Island and Lamma Island.


“We adjust the electricity charge based on the company scale and the sources of power generation,” said Esme Lau, Public Affairs Manager of Power Assets Holdings Limited. She explained that compared to the overhead lines of CLP, the electric cables of Power Assets Holdings Limited are all underground. Also, the scale of Power Assets Holdings Limited is only a third of CLP, which may affect the efficiency of power generation.


Due to these two main factors, Lau thinks that it is reasonable to have a charge difference. And she failed to say if Power Assets Holdings Limited would plan to adjust the electricity charge under the criticism.“Power Assets Holdings Limited will mainly focus on reducing emissions in power generation process now,” said Lau.


Using nuclear power can be an environmentally friendly option. But Hong Kong citizens are still concerned about nuclear safety since the March crisis at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. “Engineers think nuclear power is safe, but it is hard to deal with the fear,” said Lau. She also talked about the emissions control, “In order to reduce pollution, proper control of emissions can be our first step.”
