Northland Power (TSX: NPI) is an independent power producer founded in 1987, and publicly traded since 1997. Northland develops, finances, builds, owns and operates power generation facilities in Canada and internationally that produce energy using wind, natural gas, biomass, and solar technology. Its goal is to create long-term investor value by operating their fleet of assets to the highest standard, and investing in additional power projects that generate stable cash flows in a sustainable manner.[citation needed]

The Company owns or has a net economic interest in 2,014 MW[2] of operating generating capacity and 269 MW[2] of generating capacity under construction, representing the Deutsche Bucht Offshore Wind Project ("Deutsche Bucht" or "DeBu"). Furthermore, Northland has a portfolio of projects in various stages of development in Europe, North America, and Asia.[citation needed]

Northland's common shares, Series 1 and Series 3 preferred shares and Series C convertible debentures trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbols NPI, NPI.PR.A, NPI.PR.C, and NPI.DB.C, respectively.

Conversion to Corporation[edit]

In 2009, Northland Power Income Fund acquired and merged with Northland Power Inc. This transaction was motivated by the Government of Canada's elimination of preferential tax treatment for income trusts, which has prompted a mass conversion of Canadian income trusts into regular corporations. On June 21, 2010, Northland's unitholders approved management's plan to convert to a corporation effective January 1, 2011.[citation needed]
