Macquarie Infrastructure to Acquire Utah Solar Power Plant

By Editors of Power Engineering

Macquarie Infrastructure Corp., through its MIC Renewable Energy Holdings subsidiary, has entered into an agreement to acquire the 80-MW Utah Red Hills solar power facility from Scatec Solar.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Utah Red Hills facility was finished in December 2015 and is expected to commence its 20-year power purchase agreement with PacifiCorp in December 2016.

The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2016, pending approval.

Utah Red Hills will be Macquarie’s third acquisition of solar projects from Scatec following Scatec’s decision to exit US solar development. Previously, Macquarie bought two solar facilities in Hawaii totaling seven MW.

Macquarie remains invested in gas as well, as the company partnered with Siemens Financial Services to build the 940-MW Lordstown Energy Center combined-cycle gas turbine project in Ohio earlier this year.
