Capital Dynamics, an independent global private asset management firm, entered into an agreement to acquire interests in three solar PV projects from LS Power. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals and is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2020.
The portfolio comprises 316 megawatts of operating solar resources located in California, Arizona, and Delaware. Each project utilizes commercially proven and efficient technology, and is fully contracted under long-term power purchase agreements. The projects achieved commercial operations between 2011 and 2014.
The portfolio includes:
- 100% interest in Centinela Solar Energy, 252 megawatts located in Imperial County, CA
- 30% interest in Arlington Valley Solar Energy II, 53 megawatts located in Maricopa County, AZ
- 100% Interest in Dover Sun Park, 11 megawatts located in Dover, DE
“The acquisition of this portfolio is consistent with our strategy of acquiring or developing clean energy infrastructure assets in attractive locations. These high-quality, contracted projects will be an important addition to our 4.6 GW solar portfolio and our 2.9 GWh energy storage portfolio, compounding our ability to achieve benefits of scale, leverage our deep operational experience, and unlock opportunities to add value to this critical energy infrastructure,” said Tim Short, Managing Director, Clean Energy Infrastructure at Capital Dynamics in New York.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
