Broadland – Sri Lanka’s Last Major Hydroelectric Project to be commissioned by 2020.

The New Broadlands Power Plant in Kithulgala being constructed centering on the Maskeliya and Kehelgamu Oya, two main branches of the Kelani River, expects to support the power needs of the country by adding 35 megawatts of power daily to the national grid. The Broadlands Hydro Power Plant which is the last in the series of Laxapana hydro power plants has been halted for 25 years due to environmental concerns.
