Clearway also closed $427 million in construction debt financing, for which Mizuho Bank acted as the coordinating lead arranger and with Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC), MUFG Ban, Santander Bank, and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) each acting as mandated lead arrangers. The project will have a total of 69 turbines supplied by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. Mesquite Sky construction is being led by EPC partner Blattner Energy.
