American Samoa  

Country Analysis Note

  • American Samoa is nearly 100% dependent on imported fossil fuels, including diesel fuel for electric power generation.  
  • Electricity prices in American Samoa were about four times the U.S. average as of November 2013.
  • A significant amount of American Samoa's electricity is used to pump and treat drinking water.
  • American Samoa Power Authority's (ASPA) largest solar facility, a new 1.75-megawatt photovoltaic array near Pago Pago's airport, is expected to offset the ASPA’s diesel consumption by more than 175,000 gallons.
  • American Samoa Power Authority has set up 11 measuring stations to assess where wind turbines could be built.
