HK Electric Investments is the first fixed single investment trust listed in Hong Kong with a focus on the power industry. Our principal operating subsidiary, The Hongkong Electric Company, Limited (HK Electric), commenced operations in 1890 and is one of the longest-established utility companies in the world.
Over our long history, we have consistently supported Hong Kong's economic journey by offering safe, reliable and affordable electricity while minimising the impact of our operations on the environment as we strive to deliver sustainable growth in long-term value to our investors.
HK Electric Investments believes that open and on-going communication with our stakeholders is central to our operation and development.

Underpinned by its core value of "Pursuit of Excellence", HK Electric is committed to delivering excellent services and supply reliability to our customers. We have been providing a world-class supply reliability of over 99.999% since 1997 and all our service standards are achieved or even surpassed every year.
To satisfy the aspirations from the community, and in support of Government’s energy and environmental policy objectives, HK Electric has launched a suite of "Smart Power Services".
HK Electric is one of the longest-established power companies in the world. The Company has a world-class record of providing a highly reliable electricity supply to Hong Kong and Lamma islands at a reasonable and affordable price.
HK Electric Investments is committed to meeting the long-term energy needs and supporting the sustainable development of the community we serve. To do this, we focus not only on powering Hong Kong with a world-class electricity supply, but also on the way we deliver it and the impacts it has on the environment.
HK Electric aspires to be an employer of choice. We have policies and systems in place to attract talents and through continuous training and development, nurture them for a fulfilling career. We offer competitive remuneration, an ideal workplace and comprehensive wellness programmes for our employees while maintaining regular and open dialogues with them.
At HK Electric, electricity is generated round the clock at Lamma Power Station (LPS) with a total installed capacity of 3,617 MW. LPS provides a safe and reliable supply of electricity for more than 580,000 customers on Hong Kong and Lamma islands, and contributes to HK Electric's world class reliability of more than 99.999% since 1997.
The Company is committed to using cleaner fuels including natural gas and renewable energy for power generation. We have been constructing three new gas-fired generating units in phases – L10, L11 and L12, at Lamma Power Station with L10 commissioned in 2020 and L11 to be in the first half of 2022. For L12, installation has begun and is scheduled for commissioning in 2023. With all these new gas-fired generating units becoming operational by 2023, our electricity generated from natural gas will be further increased significantly, marking a major step forward in our coal-to-gas transition to supply Hong Kong with greener energy.
Equally committed to harnessing renewable energy, we commissioned the city's first commercial scale wind turbine, "Lamma Winds" in 2006. LPS also features one of the city's largest solar power systems, contributing to the green energy produced for Hong Kong.
To tie in with the Government's escalation to "Emergency" response level under the current COVID-19 pandemic and to prevent people from gathering, HK Electric has suspended all visits to its facilities until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
