Case Study: Citicorp North America and Berkshire Hathaway Energy

Investment Powers Groundbreaking Chinese Wind Farm in US

O’Melveny represented Citicorp North America and Berkshire Hathaway Energy in connection with achieving the acquisition of preferred equity interests in the approximately 160 MW Rattlesnake wind power project being developed by Goldwind Americas, the Chicago-based subsidiary of China-based Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology Co., in McCulloch County, Texas. The project, which is expected to be eligible for production tax credits pursuant to Section 45 of the United States Internal Revenue Code, is powered by 64 Goldwind turbines and will be Goldwind’s largest US wind project to date and its first tax-equity-financed project—a first of its kind for a Chinese wind energy technology company. View More Case Studies
