This situation together whith an inapropriate use of the potentialities of power plants cleaner than the region offers becomes a worry subjects which are analyzed in the present work about the contribution for energy and environmental maintenance in Huambo city, on this basis the diagnosised problem and use of diverse methods, from the hypothesis that the individual production of energy in Huambo city is the main factor responsible for the atmospheric pollution that is seen in this region. Potential was analyzed three scenes that allows to characterize the current problems of energy supply in Huambo city, its economic and ambient impacts and is considered alternative that they point viable power plants under the economic and ambient point of view.
