HISTORY OF EPC

The EPC was established in December 1972, under the EPC Act 1972, then superseded by the EPC Act 1980 with amendments made under the EPC Amendment Act 1981. In 2010, EPC operation was deregulated under the Electricity Act 2010 that established the Office of the Regulator, and opened up the market for generation of electricity supply. Since then, electricity supply generated by Independent Power Producers (IPP) using solar energy, are sold to EPC for transmission, distribution and selling to our customers. Currently, EPC operates 8 hydro plants (1 in Savaii and 7 in Upolu), solar farms at Apolima Island, Tuanaimato, Vaitele, Tanugamanono and Salelologa Savaii, a wind farm at Vailoa Aleipata, and diesel power plants at Fiaga Upolu and Salelologa Savaii. To date, works continue for further developments of its existing generation and distribution network. As mandated to generate, distribute and sell electricity supply to all of Samoa, the EPC has connected up to 99% of Samoa’s population.
