DLA Piper advises Sonnedix in sale of Puerto Rico solar operations to ArcLight’s Infinigen platform

DLA Piper represented Sonnedix, a leading global solar independent power producer (IPP), in the sale of its interest in the “Puerto Rico solar operations” to ArcLight Capital Partners’ Infinigen renewables platform.
