FACTS & FIGURES
CalEnergy Generation

CalEnergy Philippines, through a build-operate-transfer arrangement with the Philippine government, operates and maintains a power plant on the island of Luzon in the Philippines.

Commencing commercial operation in December 2001, the Casecnan Multipurpose Irrigation and Power Project is a combined hydro and irrigation facility that diverts excess water from the Casecnan and Taan rivers through a 16-mile-long tunnel to a generating plant. The water is then used to irrigate nearly 137,000 hectares of rice fields in central Luzon. In addition to generating 150 megawatts from its own hydro plant, the Casecnan facility provides water to two other nearby hydro plants.

CalEnergy Philippines provides assistance to local governments and communities through its corporate social responsibility programs and supports educational opportunities, livelihood projects, environmental stewardship, and infrastructure development.

CalEnergy Philippines completed a six-year pilot reforestation program in 2010, with more than 3,600 hectares reforested. Maintenance of reforested areas is ongoing.

In October 2012, after more than 11 years in commercial operation, CalEnergy Philippines achieved 1.75 million safe man-hours worked without a lost-time accident or Occupational Safety and Health Administration recordable incident.
