Greenko, backed by the sovereign wealth funds of Abu Dhabi and Singapore, took over SunEdison sites in September that include ones with 440 megawatts of capacity already operating and another 1,200 megawatts of projects still under development, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because they are not authorized to speak to the media. The assets are valued at about USD 500 million, one of the people said.
