2023-03-13


Sonnedix Japan, on behalf of the Sonnedix Group of companies, has secured two projects in Japan (18.1MWp Sonnedix Hanamizuki and 16.4MWp Sonedix Motegi) with MUFG Bank as the lead negotiator for a combined facility size of JPY 13,247M (EUR 97.3M). The Sonnedix Hanamizuki was acquired in Q1 2022 at an operational stage from Thai Solar Energy Public Company Limited, whilst the Sonnedix Motegi was acquired in late 2021 from Trina Solar International System Business Unit (ISBU) in Japan – Trina Solar Japan Energy and started construction in January 2022. Axel Thiemann, CEO of Sonnedix, said: "We are very proud of our growth and expansion in Japan, where we have established ourselves as a trusted solar IPP, developing key partnerships with financial institutions like MUFC Bank, allowing us to continue building and operating solar PV plants, pushing the country's energy transition forward!". Sonnedix Japan, on behalf of the Sonnedix group of companies, currently manages a total capacity including projects under construction and development of approximately 0.5GW.

Nexamp and IBEW Local 103 Partner on Solar and Energy Storage System

2023-03-13


Nexamp and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 103 celebrated the completion of a solar and energy storage project at IBEW's headquarters in Dorchester, MA. The project will provide IBEW with annual savings on energy costs and supplemental power in the event of a local power outage, and is an ideal example of how the Massachusetts solar developer community and organized labor can lead the way in transitioning to a clean and resilient electric grid. Officials taking part in today's event at IBEW Local 103 included: • Lou Antonellis, Business Manager of IBEW Local 103 • Zaid Ashai, CEO of Nexamp • Representative Jeff Roy, House Chair of the Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities & Energy • Representative Dan Hunt, Chair of the House Committee on Federal Stimulus and Census Oversight • Frank Baker, Boston City Councilor, District 3 • Bernard Treml, Regional Director, U.S. Department of Labor and Office of Apprenticeship "Nexamp is extremely proud of our partnership with IBEW and this project, which will benefit Local 103 and its members for years to come," said Nexamp CEO Zaid Ashai. "This effort builds on our longstanding relationship and helps prepare us for the urgent work ahead, building a renewable and resilient grid that will create local jobs and help mitigate the worst impacts of climate change." "Today marks a historic day for our union," noted Lou Antonellis, Business Manager of IBEW Local 103. "We are committed to building a sustainable, resilient, and energy-efficient future for our members and our communities. The completion of this project demonstrates that IBEW electrical workers are leading the way in transitioning to clean energy and resilient infrastructure. We have always had green technology on our campus and this project completed with Nexamp takes that to the next level." The project comes at a key time with the recent passage of state and federal legislation that will speed the development of renewable energy and create clean energy jobs for more Americans. Just two months ago President Biden signed into law the Inflation Reduction Act, the largest single investment in clean energy in U.S. history. And just a couple of months prior, here in Massachusetts, Governor Baker signed into law An Act Driving Clean Energy and Offshore Wind, the second climate bill in two years aimed at supercharging the state's transition to a clean energy future. Together, these bills will accelerate renewable energy development and help bring more projects, like the one at IBEW Local 103, online. "The solar installation at IBEW Local 103 will help us address climate change the way the IPCC said we must and will help us achieve the energy independence we need," said Rep. Jeff Roy, House Chair of the Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities & Energy. "It's incredible, it's most welcome, and it's inspiring. And it's so heartwarming to note that the Massachusetts solar developer community partnered with our brothers and sisters in organized labor to lead the way in transitioning to a clean and resilient electric grid. It's projects like this that keep Massachusetts at the top of the heap in the nation on clean energy and climate policy." "Our partnership with IBEW Local 103 has deepened over the past decade as our company has grown. We know this relationship with labor will be essential to Nexamp's future success and our work building out the nation's clean energy infrastructure," added Chris Perron, Nexamp Senior Vice President of Clean Energy Deployment. IBEW's combined solar and storage system, designed and installed by Nexamp and Lynnwell Associates, will provide enough energy to meet nearly 70 percent of the electricity needs of IBEW's headquarters. Combining the solar generation with energy storage has the added cost saving benefit of enabling IBEW to store solar power when electricity prices are low and use it when prices are high. It can also provide much needed backup power during disruptions caused by increasingly frequent and intense storms. Mark Frigo, Nexamp Vice President of Energy Storage explained, "We've seen a significant spike in interest in energy storage among commercial customers over the past year as the technology has improved and the benefits are becoming more apparent. The project with IBEW is one of our first behind-the-meter applications and is a great example of how storage is able to address rising energy costs as well as an increased need for resiliency." Nexamp is a leading developer of solar and energy storage solutions nationwide, and this project is one of a growing number in Massachusetts that pair solar energy with energy storage and benefit from state incentives under the Massachusetts SMART program to increase grid resiliency and manage power on the electric grid during times of peak energy use. The partnership with Nexamp is one of IBEW's many efforts to reduce its carbon footprint, reduce energy costs,

Sonnedix has completed the acquisition of ARCO in Chile. Arroyo Investors ("Arroyo") established ARCO to pursue investment opportunities in the renewable generation markets in Chile. Axel Thiemann, CEO of Sonnedix, affirmed: "Sonnedix has been preparing for the next phase of the energy transition – providing green, affordable electricity targeted at our customers' needs – this acquisition allows us to start to hybridize our generation profile, and is the first step in our journey to become a true customer-oriented, risk-balanced, renewable energy solutions provider". "I feel tremendously proud of our extraordinary team for this important milestone for our company" – said Carlos Guinand, Executive Chairman of Sonnedix. "Since we began in Chile ten years ago, we have been deeply committed to helping the country to meet its renewable power targets, playing an active role in the energy transition. This transaction demonstrates our long-term commitment, but also our interest in becoming a key player in the Chilean market." David T. Field, a Founding Partner at Arroyo, stated: "Establishing and growing the renewables generation portfolio of assets within ARCO has been a milestone achievement for Arroyo. The transaction to sell ARCO to Sonnedix, a world-class renewables company, is a resounding achievement for both Arroyo and the strong leadership team at ARCO, affirming our collective vision and commercial execution." With this acquisition, Sonnedix enters the wind generation space in Chile, where they have been present as a solar IPP since 2015. The company adds now 290MW of renewable energy projects to its portfolio, reaching over 1GW of total capacity in Chile, and 7.4GW globally.
