According to the disclosure, the Opex-model for distributed generation (DG) is a relatively nascent approach by companies offering rooftop solar to their commercial and industrial client base. The model circumvents the capex-heavy upfront investment through a build-operate transfer or power purchase agreement. A client thus benefits from a reliable and affordable source of energy – a solid alternative to Türkiye’s energy grid. To assess the potential for Opex-driven DG in Türkiye, IFC conducts a client preparation project with the local company EscoSolar. The project will assess how EscoSolar is developing a bankable PPA model by providing legal, technical, financial and E&S compliance reviews with local legal, accounting, and consultancy firms. Dependent on the findings, the project may lead to increased confidence in the Opex-model and Türkiye’s DG market, as well as potential financing opportunities should the business case remain strong.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
