Northland Power Named 2013 North American Developer of the Year By Project Finance Magazine

12:44 EDT Thursday, March 13, 2014

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 13, 2014) - Northland Power Inc. ("Northland") (TSX:NPI)(TSX:NPI.PR.A)(TSX:NPI.PR.C)(TSX:NPI.DB.A)(TSX:NPI.DB.B) one of Canada's leading independent producers of wind, solar, and thermal power for over 25 years, will be named North American Developer of the Year by the influential power industry publication Project Finance at its annual awards banquet in New York City on March 13, 2014.

Northland was chosen by the publication's editorial team based on a number of criteria, including the diversity and breadth of two high profile bond financings completed over the past year. The award also recognizes Northland's entry into the burgeoning offshore wind market with the 600 MW offshore wind project Gemini in the North Sea, and the advancement of Northland's significant ground-mount solar portfolio. The solar portfolio now includes eight operating facilities with another five in construction.

"It is an honour to have our accomplishments acknowledged by a publication as trusted as Project Finance," said John Brace, Chief Executive Officer of Northland Power. "Northland has grown significantly in recent years, almost tripling our megawatts in operation since 2009. This growth trajectory has been possible because of our sustained focus on delivering high quality projects and innovative financing solutions, while continuously enhancing shareholder value. With proven success developing projects in Canada, we look forward to expanding our footprint across further markets in Canada and internationally, and continuing to deliver growth that is strategic and measured."
