St. Helena: Wind Power

Volume 493: debated on Wednesday 3 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs pursuant to the answer of 21 April 2009, Official Report, column 560W, on British Overseas Territories: electricity generation, what percentage of St. Helena’s electricity requirements is generated through the wind power programme. (276789)

The wind power programme on St. Helena is the responsibility of St. Helena Government. I understand that in April 2009, 3-4 per cent. of the total energy consumption was being generated through that programme. There are plans in place to increase this percentage by the end of the year.
