Swaziland - Energy and power





In 2001, Swaziland had a total installed capacity of 131,000 kW, one-third by hydroelectric stations. In 2000, a total of 362 million kWh was generated, 44.2% from hydropower and 55.8% from fossil fuels. Consumption of electricity in 2000 was 900.7 billion kWh. The largest energy-generating facility in Swaziland is the 50 MW Luphohlo-Ezulwini hydroelectric station. About $10–13 million of electricity is imported annually from South Africa (690 million kWh in 1998). All petroleum products come from South Africa.
