MUFG Bank is acting as the sole green structuring advisor for a USD 333 million financing deal for SoftBank’s latest and largest solar project in India.
This marks the first green certification of a solar project loan for both the client and the country, and underscores both MUFG’s sustainable financing capabilities as well as commitment towards partnering clients in their environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives, said the company in a statement released in Singapore.
Green certificates are given for the production of power from renewable sources like solar.
The 900 megawatt-DC solar farm in the Phalodi-Pokhran Solar Park in Rajasthan is the seventh project in line to be commissioned by SB Energy Holdings Limited (SB Energy), a majority-owned subsidiary of SoftBank Group.
This is the third project financing undertaken by MUFG bank for Softbank in India. The transaction closed in August, and with the bank’s assistance, attained green certification on 22 December 2020.
