As stated by the DFC, the project consists of the development, construction and operation of a 200-megawatt solar photovoltaic power plant near the city of Manta in the Manabí province of Ecuador.
The Project is expected to have a positive development impact in Ecuador through the development of 200 MW of solar photovoltaic capacity, which is expected to generate 344 GWh of energy annually. The additional energy supply will help address Ecuador’s growing energy needs and support the diversification of Ecuador’s electricity generation, which is currently highly consolidated around hydropower with most of the remaining generation from fossil fuels. The Project also represents the first large-scale solar power project in Ecuador, demonstrating the financial and operational viability of solar projects in the country.
Solararomo SA is a company headquartered in Manta, Ecuador, which operates in the power sector.

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.
