Acciona SA will sell 18 German wind farms to counter cuts in renewable energy payments.

The wind farms will be sold to Swisspower Renewables AG for $215 million.

Acciona, one of the largest wind operators in Spain, released a statement noting that the company will divest farms in Lower Saxony and Brandenburg with a combined capacity of 150.3 MW.

The sale comes after Spain placed a 7 percent tax on electricity production and released plans to limit payments to clean-power generators, according to Bloomberg.
