About Northland Power Income Fund

The Fund's natural-gas-fired power plants and wind farms are located in Canada, the United States and Germany. The Fund is also providing $30 million as subordinated debt to Northland Power Inc.'s 265 MW Thorold Cogeneration Project that is under construction near the Town of Thorold, Ontario and $35 million to the Jardin d'Eole wind project under construction near Matane, Quebec.

The Fund's trust units and convertible debentures, which trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbols NPI.UN and NPI.DB respectively, are qualified investments for RRSPs and DPSPs under the Canadian Income Tax Act. The Fund has in place a distribution re-investment plan that allows unitholders who are residents of Canada to automatically have their monthly cash distributions reinvested in additional units. Participants do not pay any costs associated with the plan, including brokerage commissions. For further information or to join the plan, contact your financial advisor or broker.
