According to the DFC, the objective of the project is the expansion of sales and financing of off-grid solar powering systems for households and small businesses across Nigeria.
The DFC stated that downstream investments are expected to result in minimal adverse environmental and social impacts. Therefore, all those downstream investments have been pre-screened as Category C and further review and consent is not required for these investments.
According to Bloomberg, Greenlight Planet Inc. develops solar powered lanterns. The Company's products feature light emitting diode bulbs, photovoltaic chargers, and lithium ion battery systems that together provide hours of bright light throughout the night. Greenlight Planet serves customers around the world where access to electricity is limited.
Greenlight Planet Sun King Nigeria Limited is its Nigerian subsidiary. It "install[s] clean, safe, affordable solar power systems for homes that lack access to a reliable electrical grid."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION (DFC)
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.
