La Jacinta is located in Salto, Department of Salto, Uruguay, and currently operates under a 30-year Power Purchase Agreement (“PPA”) with UTE, the state-owned utility of Uruguay. The la Jacinta solar power project financed by the IDB with an A/B Loan for US$56 million and a C2F Loan for US$25 million is seeking to optimize it current financing through an IDB Invest A/B Bond.
