Invenergy sells majority interest in Prairie Breeze wind farms

Invenergy Wind, LLC has sold majority ownership in its Prairie Breeze Wind Energy Center, including Prairie Breeze I and II in Antelope and Boone counties.
TerraForm Power, Inc., an owner and operator of clean energy power plants, and SunEdison, Inc., the world’s largest renewable energy development company, announced Monday that TerraForm Power has signed a definitive agreement to acquire net ownership of 930 megawatt (MW) of wind power plants from Invenergy, the largest independent wind owner in the United States.
The acquisition is expected to add a sizeable, high-quality contracted power plant portfolio to the TerraForm Power and SunEdison family of companies, strengthening one of the largest and highest growth.
Invenergy will complete construction of its Prairie Breeze III wind farm in Antelope County, and its staff will remain headquartered in Elgin to handle maintenance of the wind farms, said Alissa Krinsky, communications director for Invenergy.
