Entire Document

The preliminary purchase prices for these distributed generation facilities were reduced from $3.1 million to $2.8 million pursuant to the terms of the relevant agreements.
The preliminary purchase price for this utility scale solar facility was reduced from $36.6 million to $36.2 million pursuant to the terms of the relevant agreements.

In connection with the Invenergy Wind Acquisition as discussed in Note 5. Acquisitions, Sun Edison LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of SunEdison, acting as intermediary, entered into certain option arrangements with Invenergy Wind for its remaining 9.9% interest in the acquired companies. Simultaneously, Terra LLC entered into a back to back option agreement with Sun Edison LLC on substantially identical terms. The Option Agreements effectively permit (i) Terra LLC to exercise a call option to purchase the Invenergy Wind Interest over a 180-day period beginning on September 30, 2019, and (ii) Invenergy Wind to exercise a put option with respect to the Invenergy Wind Interest over a 180-day period beginning on September 30, 2018. The exercise prices of the put and call options described above would be based on the determination of the fair market value of the Invenergy Wind Interest at the time the relevant option is exercised, subject to certain minimum and maximum thresholds set forth in the Option Agreements. As part of the Settlement Agreement (which was approved by the Bankruptcy Court), with certain limited exceptions, all agreements, including the Option Agreement between Terra LLC and Sun Edison LLC, will be rejected as of the effectiveness of the settlement, which will occur upon the consummation of the Merger, subject to satisfaction of conditions precedent, or an alternative transaction that is jointly supported by the Company and SunEdison or a Stand-Alone Conversion. If the Option Agreement is rejected under the Settlement Agreement, the Company would not expect to be obligated to perform on its Option Agreement.

Incentive Revenue

Certain solar renewable energy certificates ("SRECs") are sold to SunEdison under contractual arrangements at fixed prices. Revenue from the sale of SRECs to affiliates was $0.2 million, $0.2 million and $1.1 million during the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and is reported within operating revenues, net in the consolidated statements of operations.


The Company has two reportable segments: Solar and Wind. These segments comprise the Company's entire portfolio of renewable energy facility assets and are determined based on the management approach. This approach designates the internal reporting used by management for making decisions and assessing performance as the source of the reportable segments. The Company’s operating segments consist of Distributed Generation, North America Utility and International Utility that are aggregated into the Solar reportable segment and Northeast Wind, Central Wind and Hawaii Wind that are aggregated into the Wind reportable segment. The operating segments have been aggregated as they have similar economic characteristics and meet all of the aggregation criteria. Corporate expenses include general and administrative expenses, acquisition costs, formation and offering related fees and expenses, interest expense on corporate-level indebtedness, stock-based compensation and depreciation, accretion and amortization expense. All net operating revenues for the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014 were earned by the Company's reportable segments from external customers in the United States (including Puerto Rico), Canada, the United Kingdom and Chile.
