This new non-recourse financing has resulted in net proceeds for Atlantica of approximately $143 million, net of transaction costs and reserves. The project debt agreements in each of the four assets remain in-place unaltered. Atlantica expects to use the proceeds to finance new investments in renewable assets.

The methodology for the fund allocation process is defined in the “Framework” designed for green finance issuances and it is available in Atlantica’s website. The issuance was made with the support of an unqualified Second Party Opinion delivered by Sustainalytics, also published in Atlantica’s website.
