It had acquired the 11-turbine site as well as 134MW of other wind farms and 39MW of solar PV projects, in February.

Power from Ohorayama will be sold to island utility Shikoku Electric Power Company under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA), Pattern stated.

The US developer had acquired a 206MW wind and solar portfolio from one of its development funds, Pattern Development 1.0, and Green Power Investments (GPI), a Japanese renewable developer in which it holds a majority stake.

Pattern intends to complete the 122MW Tsugaru wind farm — the largest project acquired in the deal in February — in 2020, the company’s CEO Mike Garland added.
