SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bloom Energy (NYSE: BE) today announced that it has completed the conversion of its outstanding 10% Convertible Promissory Notes due 2021 and as a result the notes, with a balance of $249 million on June 30, 2020, have been retired. In addition, Bloom Energy has called the outstanding balance of $79 million of its 10% Senior Secured Notes due 2024 and set the redemption date of November 8, 2020 and payoff date of November 9, 2020.
