Scheme of Control

HK Electric's business is regulated through a bilateral agreement - Scheme of Control Agreement (SCA) – entered with the Hong Kong SAR Government (the Government). The agreement provides a framework for the Government to monitor the Company's financial affairs and operating performance.

The SCA regime has proven itself a simple, light-handed and cost-effective tool to accomplish in full the Government's energy policy objectives of providing a safe, reliable and environmentally friendly supply of electricity at a reasonable price. It provides HK Electric with the certainty much needed for making timely and sufficient long-term infrastructure investment, as well as the flexibility in managing and operating its power supply business efficiently.
