Higher power cost for 2011

Looking back over the last year, the increasing interest in building energy efficiency was notable, if not somewhat misdirected. However,  the wider publicity and awareness of the issues will we hope drive consumers in the future to seek expert advice.

If a reminder is needed, your electricity bill will be higher next year (2010), because  both of Hong Kong’s power generation utilities CLP (China Light and Power) and HKE (Hong Kong Electric) will raise their electricity tariff by 2.8%.

Links to the official announcement:



For the Hong Kong largest consumers, that increase means extra millions will need to be found in the budget,  and that should drive energy efficiency improvements.
