Intesa Sanpaolo has structured and partially underwritten a green credit facility of up to $8.8 billion for SunZia, the United States’ largest-ever green energy infrastructure, entailing:

  • the Western Hemisphere’s largest wind farm, with a capacity of 3.5 GW, in New Mexico
  • a 550-mile (885 km) high-voltage power line between New Mexico and Arizona, capable of transporting 3 GW of clean, safe and affordable electricity to millions of Americans in the Western United States.

Intesa Sanpaolo’s IMI CIB Division also acted as Initial Coordinating Lead Arranger, Joint Book Runner and Co-Green Loan Structuring Agent, as well as providing hedging solutions.

 “Leveraging our significant international experience in project financing and our sizeable participation in the green loan facility – which Intesa Sanpaolo structured for SunZia with other leading financial institutions – this transaction underlines our support to the renewable energy sector in the United States and globally
