India's ReNew Power raises $375m with green bond issue

The proceeds will primarily be used to refinance its outstanding external commercial debt.

India's ReNew Power has concluded a green bond issue of $375m which was offered at a yield of 6.67% per annum, an announcement revealed.

The capital raised through the five-year non-call two notes will be used for refinancing the IPP’s outstanding external commercial borrowings and as capex in eligible green projects.

“The bond issue was in line with our strategy of diversifying debt sources. The issuance enabled us to fix our interest rate risk and achieve a lower pricing than existing borrowing costs,” ReNew Power’s deputy CFO Kailash Vaswani said in a statement.
