Feda Culture Andorra - The History of Electricity in Andorra

Feda Culture Andorra

FEDA’s history begins in the begining of the 30’s of the last century with the creation of the FHASA ( Forces hidroelèctriques d’Andorra Societat Anònima ) electricity company, which not only implemented electricity in all the houses in our small country, but was also responsible for the creation of many of the roads that we have today in the Andorra co-Principate, including the road that leads to Pas de la Casa passing through the port of Envalira at more than 2,400 meters above sea level.
FEDA is fully committed to Andorran society and, in particular, to the promotion of culture, education, scientific dissemination and the protection of the national heritage. From here come projects such as the creation of the MW Electricity Museum, the didactic itinerary of the Engolasters Hydroelectric Trail or the implementation of lighting in emblematic buildings. It also works in partnership with other institutions in the form of sponsorship to carry out initiatives in the key of disseminating knowledge and national heritage.

FEDA contributes actively in the sponsorship of a lots of different cultural activities in Andorra. Among them is responsible for the construction of the firsts roads network in our country at the beginning of the 20th century.

The electricity museum is located in the Encamp hydroelectric plant and explains all the historical evolution of the electricity generation process in Andorra and include several activities for the smallest of the house. Also in the same plant is the beginning of the road to the dam Engolasters, a pleasant walk in the middle of nature, where you can discover the origins of electricity production in Andorra and how it transformed our society. A guided tour recommended for all audiences.
