The project is a run-of-river hydro plant with a capacity of 5 MW. The project utilizes the hydro power potential of the Siti River as it drops down in a series of rapids in the village of Chesowari, in Mount Elgon region of Uganda. The project is situated immediately upstream of the Siti 2 Hydro Power Project. The project will be connected to the national grid. The project is in operation.
