Mini hydropower plant in Sorsogon to begin operations in June

RENEWABLE energy resource developer Sunwest Water and Electric Co. (SUWECO) will begin operating a 600-kilowatt (kW) mini hydropower plant in Sorsogon City in June, the company said in a statement.

SUWECO said that the Cawayan Upper mini hydro project, which is located in barangay Guinlajon in Sorsogon City, is 81% complete and is expected to be commissioned by June.

The P80-million power facility, which should generate 2.786 gigawatt per hour every year, will contribute to the power supply demand of Sorsogon province.

The statement cited the latest demand data from Sorsogon II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (SORECO II), which shows that the province has a total peak demand of 12.406 megawatts (MW).

The said mini hydro project will be jointly operated by SUWECO and SORECO II. SUWECO is responsible for rehabilitation and development of the said project.

“SUWECO’s priority is to develop the hydro potentials and to help electric cooperatives to rehabilitate and improve on their existing generating capacities,” SUWECO President Jose Silvestre M. Natividad said in the statement.

“We develop projects regardless of size as we believe that in unison these small projects will provide a big contribution to our communities through all the direct and indirect benefits brought about by our projects to our host communities, thus we provide window for a better way of life and better future where communities coexists with a vibrant ecosystem,” Mr. Natividad added.

SUWECO, incorporated in 2005, currently operates two mini hydropower plants with a total capacity of 3.6 MW in the province of Catanduanes. It has renewable energy projects in the pipeline with total capacity of around 270 megawatts. — CAMCF
