Baker & McKenzie act in IPO to fund Australia’s largest CBD solar installation

by |
Baker & McKenzie has assisted Sydney Renewable Power Company Limited in its initial public offering of shares.
Sydney Renewable Power has constructed Australia's largest CBD solar installation on top of the new International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour.
The installation, a 520kW PV array, covers the equivalent of 12 tennis courts in size and is expected to generate enough electricity to power approximately 100 homes each year.
“We were delighted to act for our client on such an important renewable energy project. A fundamental guiding philosophy of our client's volunteer Board has been to create an opportunity for the community to invest in solar projects that help the Australian economy transition away from an economy that is powered by fossil fuels,” said Craig Andrade, lead partner on the transaction.
“The project allows apartment dwellers who otherwise can't put solar panels on their roof to invest directly in solar,” he added.
Craig was assisted by Baker & McKenzie senior associate, Hoda Nahlous.
