The facility is a joint venture between Pattern Energy, an Axium-led consortium and Capital Power Corporation. Capital Power Corporation has also agreed to sell its interest in the facility to the Axium Consortium under the same agreement. The transaction is expected to close on, or around, December 31, 2018, subject to customary closing conditions.
