The Sunwest Water and Electric Company (Suweco) will begin operations of its 600 kW Cawayan micro hydro project in June, the renewable energy developer said.

The US$1.96 million project is located in Sorsogon and is a joint venture between Suweco and the Sorsogon II Electric Cooperative.

Suweco said small hydropower projects fit the company's objective of bringing electricity to locations where larger projects are prohibitive.

"We develop projects regardless of size as believe that, in unison, there 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," said Suweco President Jose Silvestre M. Natividad. "Thus we provide a window for a better way of life and better future where communities co-exist with a vibrant ecosystem."

HydroWorld.com reported in March that Suweco's 8-MW Villaciga 1 hydroelectric project will also be completed in June.
