New York-headquartered DESRI said it would use part of the proceeds to fund the development and construction of renewables plants as well as to potentially fund project acquisitions and “other strategic opportunities”.

Goldman Sachs and BofA Securities are joint bookrunners on the deal.

DESRI’s co-founders launched the company in 2010 as a new business within the D. E. Shaw group, a global investment and technology development firm.

The IPP develops, constructs, owns and operates renewable energy projects across the US, with a primary focus on utility-scale solar. As of September 2021, its portfolio of utility-scale renewables assets includes 67 solar, wind and battery storage projects in 25 US states representing 6,468MW of capacity across contracted pre-construction, construction and operational phases.

The company also has an uncontracted development pipeline of more than 11GW of renewable power generation projects and over 1GW of energy storage installations.

In an IPO prospectus, DESRI touted its ability to secure consistent revenue streams from power purchase agreements (PPAs), some with terms of more than three decades.

Last October saw the company close debt and tax equity financing for a 149MWac PV project in Michigan and sign a PPA for a 160MWac solar plant in Virginia that will help to power Facebook data centres.

FREE WEBINAR -This special webinar will take a deep dive into the latest PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings pyramid, capturing the relative bankability status of the top 70-80 PV module suppliers globally. In addition to revealing the latest ranking of global PV module suppliers, PV Tech’s Head of Research, Finlay Colville, will show the depth of analysis and commentary included within the report for module suppliers. A key output from the webinar will be to learn which PV module suppliers have moved up the rankings pyramid in recent years and why this growth has been achieved. Conversely, some of the companies that have fallen down the rankings will be discussed, in particular those suffering from market-share losses and financial problems.
