It is the first of three Llanos solar projects included in the agreement between Trina and Matrix Renewables to install 450 MW of capacity in the next two years. The project, the first to secure project financing, was financed by Colombian development bank Financiera de Desarrollo Nacional ($6.5 MM) and Davivienda.
