Haiti’s energy consumption per capita is only one-third that of the world’s poorest nations. Other than private generators, the Peligre hydroelectric plant on the Artibonite River is the only local source of commercial energy. In 1999 Haiti produced 672 million kilowatt-hours, mostly by burning imported fossil fuels. Poor Haitians use charcoal to supply energy for home use.
