Colombia is a country of geographical differences
Colombia is a country of regional geographical differences that define a series of very clear factors for the incidence characteristics of solar radiation that may vary according to the geographical position (mountainous or plain), and take into account some factors such as distance to the sea, theaverage rainfall and soil conditions;that lead to differentiate in the amount of solar radiation that affects each region of Colombia.
