The investment grant HA-G1048 ("the project") builds upon the program 4900/GR-HA and GRT/CF-17708-HA ("Improving Electricity Access in Haiti"). The general objective of that program is to increase reliable electricity access in Haiti that promotes economic development and to strengthen electricity sector governance. The program will finance a hybrid power system at the PIC incorporating one 8 MW and one 4 MW Solar Power Plants (SPP) to reduce energy costs. The objective of the project HA-G1048 is to maximize the use of the energy produced by the 8-MWp solar photovoltaic plant (SPP) to further reduce the use of thermal power, by implementing a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) at the PIC.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
