Bugoye is a 13MW run-of-the-river hydroelectric power plant located in Bugoye sub-county, Kasese district, which is at the foot of the Rwenzori Mountains in Western Uganda. The project is operational with an annual average generation of 78GWh.

The project has a design flow of 10m3/s, gross head of 165m, three intakes, a 3.7km headrace channel, a 950m penstock, and two horizontal Francis turbines.

The project has provided a mini-grid with electricity to the local village and several other community projects. The construction of an embankment at the intake has also helped to reduce flooding risk for surrounding villages during high flow seasons.
