Cordelio Power

Cordelio Power, a Canada-based renewable power producer that manages an operating portfolio of over 1,200 MW of renewable power assets in Canada and the US, announced this week it entered the market of New York after a strategic acquisition.

Firstly, the company acquired a 900-megawatts pipeline of utility-scale solar projects from SunEast Renewables LLC. The projects that Cordelio acquired have over 600MW of projects; contracted under 20-year agreements with the New York State Energy Research Authority (NYSERDA).

Moreover, the remainder of the portfolio consists of early-stage projects located in New York and Pennsylvania. Cordelio will put the projects into service beginning in 2023.

In addition, as part of the acquisition, SunEast has entered into an agreement to work with Cordelio on an exclusive basis. This, to complete the development of the projects; to develop new renewable power projects in New York and other eastern US markets.
