Electricity – E1

The objective of this project is to reduce St Helena’s reliance on diesel fuel for electricity generation.  This will be achieved by reducing energy wastage, installing grid-tied photovoltaic systems at SHG facilities and encouraging use of solar water heaters and energy saving equipment.

Electricity – E2

The purpose of this E2 Project (Power Systems Improvement) is to ensure an adequate generation capacity at the Power Station to meet the current and long-term electricity demand of the island. This involved installing more fuel efficient diesel generators, upgrading of the 11kV switchgear, automating the Power Station operations, undertaking electrical network studies, producing an optimum wind-diesel system, improving network communications and refurbishing the Power Station auxiliary systems.

Electricity – E6

The objective of this E6 Project (Electricity Supply to Airport) is to extend the electricity infrastructure to meet the requirements of the air access project and other related developments on island.
