Our Story

The origin of Eco Power dates back to the year 1995, when our parent company, Metrocorp, purchased the 150-year-old Tea Estates of Bogawantalawa. At the same time as rigorous improvements were being made by Metrocorp in these tea factories, the Government of Sri Lanka began allowing the private sector to develop and operate small hydropower plants. Metrocorp seized this opportunity for synergy and Eco Power Group was born.

Following the commissioning of the first plants, it was clear that there was immense potential for growth for Eco Power in developing additional and larger small hydropower projects both locally and internationally. This would provide a sustainable business model and also social, economic and environmental benefits from the sustainable and ethical development of abundant renewable energy resources.

Eventually, to support growth and expansion into new international markets, further consolidation and restructuring of the Group led to establishment of Eco Power Holdings Limited (EPHL) in 2008.

Since then, two new small hydropower projects have been commissioned in Uganda, and multiple new small hydropower projects are in the advanced stages of development in both Uganda and Kenya, as well as other newer hydropower and other renewable energy projects which Eco Power has identified and are working to develop in several additional countries.
