(TSX:BEP.UN)(NYSE:BEP) ("Brookfield Renewable") today announced that, in connection with Brookfield Renewable Power Preferred Equity Inc.'s ("BRP Equity") previously announced normal course issuer bid program, BRP Equity has entered into an automatic purchase plan with its designated broker to allow for purchases of its Series 1 Class A Preference Shares, Series 2 Class A Preference Shares and Series 3 Class A Preference Shares.

From time to time, when BRP Equity does not possess material non-public information about itself or its securities, it may enter into automatic purchase plans with its broker to allow for the purchase of preferred shares at times when BRP Equity ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods and insider trading rules.

The series of preferred shares subject to an automatic purchase plan may vary. Outside of these periods, preferred shares will be repurchased in accordance with management's discretion, subject to applicable law.
