January 19, 2023

Interesting… means that they have running water sources that they may need to block off to get this working.

Dateline 2022-10-19, FMT:

The Sabah Foundation, or Yayasan Sabah, will develop mini hydropower plants at several locations in the state under a joint venture with hydropower and solar power group G Capital Bhd.

The RM3 billion project, to be undertaken by Sabah Renewable Energy Corporation Sdn Bhd, will mark a new milestone in the Sabah Maju Jaya 2021-2025 transformation masterplan that will help Malaysia become a carbon neutral economy by 2050.

Another agreement, also inked today, will see G Capital and Yayasan Sabah subsidiary Innoprise Synergy Sdn Bhd become shareholders of Sabah Renewable Energy.

Sabah chief minister Hajiji Noor, who witnessed the signing of the agreements, said the mini hydropower plants would ensure a constant supply of electricity to Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd.
