Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah attributes the recent weakness in the Solar space to investor concerns around increased interest rate and growth uncertainty, especially of YieldCos. Shah, however, views YieldCos as a significant growth catalyst for the solar and broader renewables sector. The analyst expects the current weakness to provide an attractive entry point for longer term investors. Publicly traded companies in the space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE).

08:05 EDTNEENRG Yield to acquire GE EFS' 25% interest in Desert Sunlight Solar Farm
NRG Yield, Inc. (NYLD), through its subsidiary NRG Yield Operating LLC, has entered into an agreement with GE Unit (GE) GE Energy Financial Services to acquire its 25% interest in the Desert Sunlight Solar Farm in Riverside, CA for $285M subject to customary working capital adjustments, plus the assumption of $287.4M of non-recourse project level debt. The acquisition, which provides NRG Yield with a total ownership of 137.5 megawatts of operating solar capacity, will place NRG Yield into a partnership with subsidiaries of NextEra Energy (NEE) and Sumitomo Financial (SMFG), who are the 50% and 25% owners of Desert Sunlight, respectively. The transaction is expected to increase both the annual run-rate EBITDA by approximately $45M and cash available for distribution by approximately $22M by 2016. NRG Yield expects to close the transaction by June 30, 2015. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approvals by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and notice of the acquisition to the California Public Utilities Commission. With this acquisition, NRG Yield now owns nearly 600 megawatts of solar generation. NRG Yield is supported by its parent, NRG Energy (NRG), which owns and operates approximately 1.2 gigawatts of solar generation, thus implying a combined solar portfolio of 1.8 gigawatts.
