Pure Meridian Hydropower Corp. (PMHC) – a joint venture of Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) with Repower Energy Development Corp. (REDC) – has broken ground on a new 3MW hydropower plant in Lalawinan, Quezon Province, local media has reported.

The project, the second hydropower project developed by the JV after the Pulanai mini hydropower plant in Bukidnon, will connect to the transmission infrastructure of REDC’s Upper Labayat 3MW mini-hydro power project.
