US-based renewable energy company NextEra Energy Partners has acquired nearly 285MW of contracted renewable projects from a subsidiary of its sponsor NextEra Energy Resources.

The acquisition includes modern wind facilities Cedar Bluff Wind Energy Centre and Golden Hills Wind Energy Centre, which were commissioned last year with GE technology.

NextEra Energy Partners acquired the wind facilities for approximately $312m, along with the assumption of nearly $253m in liabilities related to tax equity financing.

The company’s chairman and CEO Jim Robo said: "This transaction once again demonstrates the strong and visible runway for future growth opportunities from our sponsor, NextEra Energy Resources, which we believe is a core strength of the partnership’s value proposition.

"NextEra Energy Partners acquired the wind facilities for approximately $312m."

"The partnership’s already strong and flexible financial position for the year is further advanced by these high-quality projects expected to provide an attractive yield to investors."

With the acquisition, NextEra Energy Partners has been able to expand its portfolio of contracted renewable projects to about 2,656MW, which excludes ownership interests in equity method investments.
