BluEarth Renewables has acquired the Eads Wind and Solar Project in Kiowa and Cheyenne Counties, Colorado, from NorthRenew Energy. No financial terms were disclosed. BluEarth, a Calgary-based renewable energy company, was acquired in 2019 by DIF Capital Partners from Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.
Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – May 24, 2022) – BluEarth Renewables US LLC (“BluEarth”) is pleased to announce it has acquired the Eads Wind and Solar Project (the “Project”) in Kiowa and Cheyenne Counties, Colorado from NorthRenew Energy LLC (“NorthRenew”). The Project is expected to be completed in multiple phases totaling approximately 1 GW of new wind and solar generation that will bring significant economic benefit to the local community and State of Colorado.
This is the second transaction in 2022 between BluEarth and NorthRenew, an experienced US renewable and sustainable project developer. The acquisition complements BluEarth’s existing development portfolio of over 1 GW of advanced development utility-scale wind projects in Canada and the U.S., and over 3 GW of early-stage development projects.
“We look forward to entering the Colorado market with this Project, which fits very well with our full life-cycle approach, taking projects from development to operations,” said Grant Arnold, President and CEO of BluEarth. “The team at NorthRenew has been excellent to work with and has a long track record of successful developments. We are pleased to complete another transaction with them.”
BluEarth believes the Project will be an important component of Colorado’s 2030 emissions reduction strategy, and it looks forward to supporting the state’s efforts to further decarbonize its electricity grid.
“This latest transaction demonstrates our overall confidence in BluEarth’s ability to complete the Eads project in which they bring substantial development and operational expertise,” said Garth Klimchuk, Managing Partner of NorthRenew. “We look forward to working closely with them on this, Buffalo Branch and many more projects over the next several years.”
