SunEdison Gets $300M project financing for solar projects

DFN: SunEdison is moving its corporate headquarters over to the SF penisula, its a subsidiary of MEMC (ticker symbol WFR)

BELTSVILLE, Md., Oct. 12, 2011 – SunEdison, a leading worldwide solar energy services provider and a subsidiary of MEMC Electronic Materials, Inc., has secured a $300 million three-year project finance revolving credit facility arranged by Deutsche Bank Securities, Inc. and Rabobank. The credit facility will be used to support the construction costs of utility and rooftop solar projects throughout the United States and Canada and the capital is immediately available.

This is one of the largest non-recourse project financing revolving credit facilities ever issued for photovoltaic projects. The construction loans are non-recourse debt which means that they are only secured by a pledge of the collateral including the project contracts and equipment.

Currently, SunEdison has more than 500 solar energy systems deployed throughout the United States and Canada and 330 MW of installed solar capacity. This deployed solar base, financed predominately through bank funding, makes SunEdison one of the leading providers of solar energy to the U.S. and Canadian markets.

SunEdison continues to look for additional banking partners to finance its strong pipeline of solar projects in North America with additional opportunities available for lenders within this facility.

Terms of the final agreement were not released.
