Greenbacker Renewable Energy Company LLC (GREC), a leading owner and operator of sustainable infrastructure and energy efficiency projects, announced today that, through a wholly owned subsidiary, it purchased the 20-MWac West River portfolio of pre-operational solar projects from Energy of Utah.

The projects, West River Solar and West River Solar II, have a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with investment-grade utility Basin Electric Power.

Both projects are located in Pennington County, SD, approximately one hour from Fall River Solar, an 80-MWac solar project GREC purchased near the end of 2020 from the same developer. The West River portfolio is expected to reach Commercial Operations in December 2022.

“We’re very excited to expand consumer access to cleaner, cheaper energy in South Dakota,” said Charles Wheeler, CEO of GREC. “We’re also pleased to be building our relationship with Energy of Utah, the original developer of the Fall River asset we acquired last year. We look forward to partnering with them on additional sustainable infrastructure projects in the future.”

With the acquisition of these projects, Greenbacker will own approximately 1.12 GW of generating capacity (including assets that are to be constructed), comprising 853.6 MW of utility-scale and distributed solar facilities, 242.6 MW of wind facilities, 16.0 MW of battery storage, and 12.0 MW of biomass facilities.
