Acciona banks 93MW in Texas
Spanish outfit reaches financial close on San Roman project
Acciona Energy has reached financial close on its 93MW San Roman wind farm in Texas.
The global renewables player confirmed on Thursday that it had closed tax equity financing with Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
The Cameron County project will feature 31 Acciona AW125/3000 turbines and is slated for commissioning by the end of this year.
Ilya Hartmann, the company’s North America CEO, said the deal marked the Spanish outfit’s continued push into the US renewables market.
“As Acciona works to build new clean energy projects in the highly competitive U.S. market, we need partners like Bank of America Merrill Lynch who understand renewable energy and the innovative financial solutions that can move our industry forward,” he said.
“This deal was a team effort made possible by the collaboration, expertise, and dedication of both parties.”
The company already has 628MW of onshore wind capacity operating in the US.
