Latham & Watkins LLP advised ECP on the deal.
ECP completed its first Continuation Fund with US$1.2 billion in capital commitments, and the closing of the fund’s subsequent acquisition of the remaining 50% interest held by ECP’s third fund, ECP III, in Terra-Gen (the Company), a leading renewable energy developer and operator. ECP previously sold a 50% stake in the Company to First Sentier Investors. The transaction will provide additional capital to support Terra-Gen’s next phase of growth, while allowing ECP III to fully exit its original investment in the Company.
ECP, founded in 2005, is a leading investor across energy transition and decarbonization infrastructure assets, including power generation, renewables and storage solutions, sustainability-linked infrastructure and customer solutions facilitating the energy transition.
Terra-Gen, LLC is a New York headquartered renewable energy company focused on developing, owning, and operating utility-scale wind, solar, energy storage and geothermal generation assets. Terra-Gen and its subsidiaries are responsible for the operation of over 1,600 megawatts of renewable projects located in California, Colorado, Minnesota, Nevada, New York, Texas and Wyoming.
