As with all Resus renewable energy projects, these two projects have been structured with focus to generating renewable and sustainable energy combining the latest technology and an environmentally responsible business proposition.

In keeping with the company’s ethos to always give back and empower its community and its people, Resus Energy PLC undertakes various initiatives to improve the infrastructure and the quality of life within the areas it operates.

The Upper Huluganga Hydro Project saw the renovation and expansion of a community playground in the Huluganga, Gamudawa, construction of a Praja Shalawa (community centre), renovation of buildings of the Huluganga Kosgama Maha Vidyalaya, renovation and development of the main road between Huluganga and Alakole village, and renovation of the Huluganga-Kaludalla road bridge.

Realising the absence of a Pre-School in the area, Resus invited the Hemas-Piyawara programme to build a Pre-School and a playground for the children of Huluganga, Moragaha Oya, Gomare and Bambarella villages.

The Ranwala Oya Project was built at a cost of Rs. 280 Mn and is located in the Uda Maliboda, Deraniyagala area. The project is estimated to generate 1.2 MW in contribution to the national grid. Commissioned on 29th November 2018, the project is powered by the Ranwala Oya also known as the Kadiran Oya which is a tributary of the Seethawaka river. Along with this project, Resus Energy PLC also assisted in the renovation of the Maliboda Kovil and the Perupalla Temple.
