Orrick Advises Intersect Power on Investment to Accelerate Development of Renewable Energy


We advised Intersect Power, one of the North America’s largest developers of utility-scale renewable energy, on securing over US$600 million in equity and debt financing from Climate Adaptive Infrastructure, Trilantic North America, Generate Capital and CarVal Investors. Intersect closed on a US$127 million equity investment from Climate Adaptive Infrastructure and Trilantic North America and a US$482 million debt facility from Generate Capital and CarVal Investors. The investments will enable Intersect to accelerate its deployment of utility-scale renewable energy, including in their core business of solar and energy storage, while expanding into the emerging decarbonization technology of hydrogen. Intersect’s pipeline consists of 3.2 GWDC of late-stage solar and storage projects and other clean infrastructure assets - anticipated to be operational by 2023.
