Pattern hits 4.4GW after North American wind deals

US-based renewables operator takes stakes in projects in Ontario and New Mexico

Renewables group Pattern Energy boosted its operating portfolio to 4.4GW after acquiring 251MW across two North American wind farms.

Pattern – which buys projects taken into operation by its sister companies at Pattern Development – spent $293m to buy half-shares in the 300MW Henvey Inlet project in Ontario, and the 220MW Grady Wind in New Mexico.

Pattern said both “are backed by long-term power contracts with investment-grade offtakers”.

"These acquisitions increase our portfolio by 13% to 4.4GW of operational capacity across 28 renewable energy facilities," said Mike Garland, CEO of Pattern Energy.
