SunEdison successfully interconnected a 70MW Rovigo power plant in Northeast Italy, near the town of Rovigo, which is a single-operating PV solar power plant.

In its first year of operation alone, the system is expected to generate enough energy to power more than 16,500 homes and prevent the emission of more than 40,000 tons of CO2.

The Rovigo solar power plant was acquired by First Reserve through an earlier joint venture between First Reserve and SunEdison.

The Rovigo solar plant is expected to create environmental benefits over its lifetime.

Investment programs managed by Partners Group, and Perennius Capital Partners SGR have invested in the project with the First Reserve joint venture.
