The Project aims to develop 22 community-scale solar plus battery storage micro-grids in southern Haiti in communities where currently no grid power exists. The Project will provide affordable and reliable 24/7 access to modern energy services in communities previously identified through extensive market scoping in this region of the country. This will be accompanied by technical assistance to build capacity for microgrid deployment and operation. The Project incorporates a battery storage solution, thus offering 24-hour service and a 100 per cent renewable energy- based viable economic alternative to diesel generators.
Besides the GCF fundings, other partners guarantee a USD 23.579.000 loan and a USD 7.967.000 grant. And partners contribute with USD 1.302.000 and USD 3.000.000 in equity.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) addresses complaints by people who believe they are negatively affected or may be affected by projects or programmes funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The complainant can raise issues related to any of GCF’s policies and procedures, including those relating to social and environmental issues, indigenous peoples, gender, and information disclosure, among others. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating problem solving or conducting a compliance process. You can learn more about the Independent Redress Mechanism and how to file a complaint at https://irm.greenclimate.fund/.
