(“Innergex”) in its acquisition of the sponsor interest in a portfolio of six operating wind farms in Elmore County, Idaho (the “Mountain Air Acquisition”) for a purchase price of $56.8 million from Terna Energy SA. The portfolio’s tax equity partner is insurer MetLife. Innergex is an independent renewable power producer that develops, acquires, owns, and operates hydroelectric facilities, wind farms, and solar farms in Canada, the United States, France, and Chile.
