Cyprus - Energy and power

The principal source of power is steam-generated electricity, which is distributed by the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) from three generating stations at Dhekelia and Momi. In 2001 these plants had an installed capacity of 737,000 kW. Total generation has risen from 12 million kWh in 1952 to 3.13 billion kWh in 1999, of which 100% was from fossil fuels. Consumption of electricity was 2.9 billion kWh in 1999. The grid system includes all towns and most villages. The south provides the Turkish sector with all of its electricity, although the EAC is prevented from collecting revenue from the Turkish sector.
