BELMONT, Calif., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SunEdison, a leading global solar energy services provider, and subsidiary of MEMC Electronic Materials, Inc. (NYSE: WFR), today announced that De Lage Landen Financial Services, Inc., a subsidiary of Rabobank Group, has committed to invest $52.5 million into a sale-leaseback fund. This fund will deliver financing to distributed generation solar PV projects developed by SunEdison within the United States. 

The financing from DLL will help support SunEdison's growing portfolio of distributed generation solar energy projects.  SunEdison's aggressive cost structure and DLL's competitive financing allows SunEdison to offer their commercial and municipal customers energy savings with clean and reliable electricity.
