The main purpose of this project activity is to generate electricity from a small-scale hydropower plant and supply of power generated to the Sri Lankan national utility grid which is Ceylon Electricity Board. Alternate Power Systems (Pt.) Ltd. is the promoter of the proposed project activity. The project activity involves installation of run-of-river 6.5 MW mini hydro power plant in Sri Lanka.

The Company’s commitment to the environment is integral to its strategy. As more and more people become concerned about hydropower's contribution to global warming and other environmental issues arising from the construction of huge dams and the flooding of vast swathes of land, there is increased interest in run-of-the-river hydro-electricity generation as installation of such systems has very little environmental impact.
