Electric Power Corporation

Prior to its establishment as a Corporation in 1972, a division of the Public Works Department, known as the Electric Power Scheme, was given the responsibility for power sector operations.It has since continually reforms itself to fulfill its main purpose or core function, which is to generate, transmit, distribute and sell electricity. From its simple beginning 42 years ago, in supplying electricity exclusively to the Apia Township, amidst the many challenges and constraints, the Corporation now provides power to 98 per cent of the population of Samoa.
