According to bank documents, the project objectives are to (i) increase renewable energy generation and (ii) improve the reliability of the electricity supply.
The additional financing (AF) would support cost overruns identified under Component 3, Subcomponent 3.1: Rehabilitation of Contador hydropower plant and operations and maintenance support program. This subcomponent finances the works for the rehabilitation and potential expansion of the hydropower plant up to 3.2 MW. This subcomponent will also cover engineering aspects (design and supervision of works) and preparation of related safeguards documents. The new activity (Replacement of incandescent bulbs with high-efficiency LED lamps), under the proposed AF are aligned with the parent project PDO as the reduction in the demand (particularly at peak hours) will improve the reliability of the electricity supply.
