It was once one of the largest solar power plants in the world. CalPERS will purchase the ownership stake from Sumitomo Corporation of Americas, a subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation, through its Gulf Pacific Power, LLC vehicle, a partnership between CalPERS and Harbert Management Corporation, one of its external infrastructure investment managers. K&L Gates acted as legal counsel to Gulf Pacific Power for the transaction. Sumitomo Corporation of Americas was advised by BofA Merrill Lynch and Chadbourne & Parke, LLP.
