Our Story

The origin of Eco Power dates back to the year 1995, when our parent company, Metrocorp, purchased the 150-year-old Bogawantalawa Tea Estates.

The factory equipment at the tea plantations were powered by hydro-electricity generated from within the estates and required extensive upgrades and renovations. During the successful upgrades and rejuvenation of the hydro-electric equipment at the factories, the immense hydro-electric potential within Sri Lanka became clearly evident. Metrocorp seized this opportunity for synergy and Eco Power Group was born. 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.


Since commissioning over 39 MW of Hydro-Electric Plants in Sri Lanka, The Eco Power Group has expanded its operations overseas, with operations in East Africa, and developments underway in Lao PDR, Myanmar and Indonesia. Eco Power up to date has commissioned over 58 MW of hydro electric power plants and has grown to become the largest privately owned small-hydro power owner and operator in Sri Lanka.
