Enfinity Global enters into $135M financing to build 1.2 GW of advanced solar and wind power plants in India

Bengaluru, 16 May 2024- Enfinity Global Inc., a leader in renewable energy, today announced that it has signed $135 million in financing for the development and construction of 1.2 GW of solar and wind projects in India. The financing is being provided by Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments) through subsidiaries of CPPIB Credit Investments Inc.

The projects in this portfolio, spread across five states (Maharashtra, Delhi, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh), are in advanced stages of development and are expected to be commissioned between 2025 and 2026. Once interconnected, they are projected to generate 2.4 GWh of clean electricity annually, enough to power over two million Indian homes and offset 2.6 million tons of CO2 emissions.

Enfinity Global is delighted to partner with CPP Investments, one of the most respected global investors, in bringing clean energy to power India’s future,” said Carlos Domenech, CEO of Enfinity Global.

“Solar and wind power are two vital renewable energy sources and India offers a strong pipeline for such opportunities. We are pleased to partner with Enfinity Global on these projects by providing long-term and flexible capital that we believe will provide a promising source of long-term returns for the CPP Fund”, said Geoffrey Souter, Managing Director, Head of Real Assets Credit at CPP Investments.

The company owns and operates a portfolio of 240 MW solar plants in India, with over 1.5 GWs under development. Over the next 3 years, Enfinity plans to develop and commission renewable power plants to supply over 5 GWh of clean electricity annually, including through Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).
