August 31, 2023

Fengate is pleased to announce financial close on the sales of three renewable power investments, including:

  • Sault Ste. Marie Solar, a 60 MW solar portfolio located in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. In 2017, Fengate acquired 100% of Sault Ste. Marie Solar. Sault Ste. Marie Solar is a portfolio of three operating facilities which were fully contracted under long-term Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program power purchase agreements with the Independent Electricity System Operator of Ontario. Fengate sold its 100% interest to Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. in January 2023.
  • Grand Valley Wind, a 40 MW wind project located in Dufferin County, Ontario. In 2017, Fengate acquired a 75% interest in the operating wind facility. Fengate sold its interest in Grand Valley Wind to Axium Infrastructure in March 2023.
  • Weaver Wind, a 73 MW wind project located in Hancock County, Maine. Weaver Wind was a successful co-development partnership between Fengate and Longroad Energy Partners, LLC (“LEP”) established in December 2018. Fengate acquired 100% of Weaver Wind from LEP in August 2019 and reached financial close in October 2019. This investment demonstrates Fengate’s renewable power development capabilities. Fengate managed this project through late-stage development and into operations. Commercial operations commenced in the fourth quarter of 2020. Fengate sold Weaver Wind to an affiliate of Greenbacker Capital Management in July 2023.
