Great Bay Renewables (“Great Bay”) has entered into a $10.1 million interconnection support facility to assist its development partner Hexagon Energy (“Hexagon”). The secured facility will fund the refundable portions of certain MISO interconnection deposits for six solar development projects totaling approximately 1,500 MWac that Hexagon has selected for advancement in the MISO interconnection queue. These projects are part of Hexagon’s approximately 7.0 GW development portfolio.

Frank Getman, CEO of Great Bay, commented, “This deal provides ongoing support to an important development partner, enabling Hexagon to better utilize the development funding provided by Great Bay under our existing arrangement closed last year to advance critical development activities within its pipeline rather than tying up capital with interconnection deposits.” Getman added, “One of the added benefits of this deal is establishing and confirming the process for Great Bay to post interconnection deposits with MISO on behalf of third parties. We’re hopeful that this could be the beginning of an entirely new product that would result in new royalties or options to acquire royalties with other developers who are not currently partners with Great Bay. Funding interconnection deposits may represent the single biggest pain point in the renewables market today. We’re working hard to make this new product part of the solution,” said Getman.
