The net proceeds from the sale are set to be primarily utilised for repaying the existing debt on the Foard City and Phoebe projects and eliminating the power hedge offtake contract at the Phoebe facility.

The remaining funds will be allocated for general corporate purposes. This strategic move is aimed at de-risking Innergex’s assets in Texas and enhancing the overall quality of its portfolio.

The deal is anticipated to strengthen and de-leverage Innergex’s balance sheet.

Innergex will retain operating control of the assets.

Innergex president and CEO Michel Letellier stated: “We are proud to partner with Irradiant to de-risk and enhance our Texas portfolio.

“We have built large-scale and high-quality assets in Texas, and we believe that this new structure, where we depart from the power hedge offtake model, will enable us to improve our overall risk profile and optimise the performance of our assets.

“The transaction also provides an opportunity to crystallise value from our operating portfolio in Texas.”
