Corporate unsecured loan to support the Borrower’s development and construction of four solar power plants in Mexico totaling 426 megawatts of aggregate nameplate capacity.
The Project is expected to have a highly developmental impact through support for expanded private electric power supply in Mexico delivered by renewable power generation. The solar plants under the Project represent early private investment in electric generation under the electricity market reforms enacted by the government between 2015 and 2018. Mexico has a significant shortage of electric capacity relative to projected demand, with demand expected to increase by upwards of 50 percent by 2029. Additionally, much of the growth in supply will likely need to be from solar generation under the Mexican Government’s targets for clean energy.

The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
