NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Terraform Power (TERP) were gaining in mid-afternoon trading on Friday as Golden Concord is looking to purchase a controlling stake in the power plant operator from bankrupt SunEdison (SUNEQ), sources told Bloomberg.

Golden Concord, a Chinese clean energy company, is planning on bidding for SunEdison's controlling stake in TerraForm, which owns operating power plants, the sources added.

Brookfield Asset Management (BAM) and hedge fund Appaloosa Management are planning a joint bid for the controlling stake of the Bethesda, MD-based company.

The two companies already own a combined 21.5% stake in TerraForm, Bloomberg noted.

SunEdison first filed for bankruptcy in April with $16 billion in liabilities. The renewable energy company has not yet made a motion in court to sell its stake in TerraForm.
