The company notes the financing method used a sale-leaseback transaction, and participating lenders included Bankers Commercial Corp., a subsidiary of Union Bank, Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. and Citibank.

EDF Renewable Services, formerly enXco Service Corporation, will provide operations and maintenance services.
