SUNEDISON STARTS CONSTRUCTION OF A 110-MEGAWATT SOLAR ENERGY PLANT IN CHILE
Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Source: SunEdison

SANTIAGO, Chile - SunEdison, Inc has secured financing and started construction on the 110-megawatt (MW) DC Quilapilun solar power plant in the Metropolitan Region of Chile. Once completed, the power plant will be SunEdison's first solar project in Santiago and is expected to be its largest solar project in Latin America.

The energy produced by the solar plant is expected to be sold to the regulated market through long-term power purchase agreements with local electricity suppliers. The energy will supply the Sistema Interconectado Central (SIC) as part of the 570 gigawatt hour (GWh) contract awarded to SunEdison by the Chilean National Energy Commission in December, 2014.

Concurrently, SunEdison closed a $160 million long-term, non-recourse debt financing arrangement for the project with CorpBanca, one of the largest commercial banks in Chile, and DNB, Norway's largest financial services group. The financing will be used to fund the development, construction, and operation of the project.

The Quilapilun solar plant is expected to generate 242 GWh of electricity a year, enough to power 117,000 homes, and should eliminate the emission of more than 125,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year.

SunEdison previously committed the Quilapilun project to the Call Right Project List for TerraForm Power, Inc, an owner and operator of clean energy power plants. TerraForm Power intends to acquire the power plant once it is operational. Interconnection of the 110-MW solar plant is scheduled for the first quarter of 2016.

Once construction is complete, operation and maintenance of the power plant will be performed by SunEdison Services.

GAMESA TO INSTALL NINE TURBINES TO REPOWER A WIND FARM IN THE UK

MADRID - Wind energy specialist Gamesa has been contracted to supply nine wind turbines to repower the Ovenden Moor wind farm in the UK, developed by a joint venture between utility E.ON and renewable generator Energy Power Resources Ltd (EPRL). By replacing the old turbines, the facility - in operation since 1993 - will be refitted with modern technology and produce twice as much power using less than half as many turbines.

Under the terms of the agreement, Gamesa will supply, install and commission nine of its G80-2.0 MW wind turbines at the Ovenden Moor wind farm located close to the town of Halifax, in the county of West Yorkshire.

This repowering project, which is due to commence generation in 2016, will enable the replacement of 23 turbines that are 22 years of age and present aggregate capacity of 9 MW with nine Gamesa turbines that will produce twice as much power (18 MW).

The wind farm's installed capacity, once upgraded to 18 MW, will enable the supply of renewable energy to close to 12,000 homes in the UK and displace the emission of 21,000 tons of GHG per annum.

SUNEDISON TO DELIVER 180 MEGAWATTS OF SOLAR TO TATA POWER
Thursday, July 23, 2015

Source: SunEdison

CHENNAI, India - SunEdison, Inc has signed a long-term power purchase agreement with Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL) to provide 180 megawatts (MW) AC of utility-scale solar power for the people of New Delhi. TPDDL is the largest electricity distribution utility in Delhi, and provides power to over 6 million people in India's capital city. This is the largest agreement that SunEdison has signed under the open access solar framework, which allows renewable energy providers to sell energy directly through the national grid to end customers.

India has a goal of generating 100 gigawatts of solar power by 2022.

The solar power plants for this project will be built in Madhya Pradesh and are expected to supply TPDDL with electricity over the next 20 years. The plants are projected to generate 375,000 megawatt-hours a year, and eliminate the emission of approximately 300,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year.
