Invenergy has announced that it completed construction financing on December 19, 2018 for its 302.4MW Santa Rita East Wind Farm, located approximately 70 miles west of San Angelo, Texas, USA. Santander and Rabobank acted as co-lead arrangers and issuing banks, and Santander served as administrative agent for the deal.
Currently under construction, the Santa Rita East Wind Farm is the largest wind farm Invenergy has financed to date.
