In QuotedData’s morning briefing 22 December 2020:
- The Renewables Infrastructure Group has exchanged contracts to invest in Phoenix SAS, which owns a portfolio of operational wind and solar renewable energy assets. The portfolio comprises five onshore wind farms in Northern France with a combined capacity of 74MW and four operational solar parks with battery storage located on the islands of Corsica and La Réunion with a combined capacity of 29MW. All the assets are backed by the French government’s Feed-in-Tariff subsidy. The investment is made in the form of mezzanine level bonds which are scheduled to be fully repaid within a period of 12 years, which is within the remaining subsidy life of the portfolio and offer returns with very little sensitivity to changes in wholesale power prices. This investment will represent approximately 2% of TRIG’s portfolio. When combined with the investment in East Anglia One, there will be drawings of approximately £40m under TRIG’s revolving credit facility.
