Run-of-the-River Hydro
CalEnergy Generation's Casecnan project – a hydroelectric facility located in the northern part of Luzon, the Philippines’ main island – uses nonpolluting, renewable, indigenous hydroelectric sources, as water from the Casecnan and Taan Rivers is collected and diverted by two small diversion weirs. In addition to the project's electricity generation, diverted water also is used for agricultural purposes.
