According to ADB website, ADB is helping the Solomon Islands shift to reliable, cleaner power in provincial centers. The project will assist the Solomon Islands Electricity Authority (SIEA) in installing hydropower generation to replace diesel generation, and extend the power grid to new households. It will construct the Fiu River Hydropower Plant near Auki, Malaita, and also train staff in hydropower plant operation. The project would be the first utility scale renewable energy project in Solomon Islands.
The impact of the project will be increased economic activity in Auki, Malaita Province. The outcome of the Project will be increased supply of more reliable and cleaner power to Auki, Malaita Province. This project is associated with a closed project under ADB (ADB-46014-001).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
