Northland Power (TSX: NPI) is a power producer founded in 1987, and publicly traded since 1997. Northland develops, builds, owns and operates power infrastructure assets in Canada, Europe and other selected global jurisdictions that produce energy using wind, natural gas, biomass, and solar technology. Its goal is to continually increase shareholder value by creating high-quality projects underpinned by revenue contractors that deliver predictable cash flows.[6]

The Company owns or has a net economic interest in 2,681 MW[7] of operating generating capacity and 130 MW[7] of generating capacity under construction, representing the La Lucha solar project. Furthermore, Northland has a portfolio of projects in various stages of development in the Americas, Asia and Europe.[7]

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.[8]
