Congratulations to our client, Agilitas Energy, on the sale of a 16.8 MW solar photovoltaic portfolio

December 3, 2020

Sherin and Lodgen represented Agilitas Energy in the closing of its sale of a 16.8 MW (DC) solar photovoltaic portfolio to CarVal Investors.

The portfolio is made up of 12 solar projects varying from landfill, ground-mount to rooftop, located in New York, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. Over the past four years, Agilitas developed, engineered, constructed, and operated the majority of the projects, which all have power purchase agreements or net metering credit agreements for at least 20 years, with high credit off-takers such as municipalities, utility companies, and universities.

The Sherin and Lodgen team included Beth A. Goldstein, chair of the firm’s Renewable Energy Department, Colleen V. Collins, and Caroline Woodward, Of Counsel.

According to Agilitas, the proceeds from the sale will help accelerate the development of their newest portfolio, which is comprised of about 44 MW (DC) in solar PV and 34MW/113MWh of energy storage under the VDER and SMART programs incentive programs in New York and Massachusetts, targeting commercial operations within the next two years.
