Greenbacker Renewable Energy Company has announced it has closed on a new warehouse financing facility in an initial aggregate principal amount of $75m, with the potential to increase up to $250m. The climate-focused investment manager and independent power producer will use the proceeds of the facility to support the construction and operation of its renewable power generation and energy storage portfolios.
Wells Fargo serves as sole lead arranger, bookrunner, sustainability structuring agent, and administrative agent for the facility. Wilmington Trust, National Association is the collateral agent. Along with substantial borrowing capacity, the three-year revolving credit facility provides enhanced flexibility for Greenbacker’s sustainability investments. It is structured to provide commitments to extend revolving loans for eligible projects in an aggregate amount not to exceed $75m, which may be increased to an aggregate amount of up to $250m, and includes an up to $50m sublimit for issuances of letters of credit. Greenbacker is currently in market to upsize the facility through incremental commitments from other key lending relationships. The company will deploy borrowings from the warehouse facility into investments across its solar, solar-plus-storage, and standalone energy storage portfolios, expanding its ability to generate and deliver cheaper clean energy to consumers, communities, and corporations.
