Greengate Power
Corporation (”Greengate”), through the sale of its wholly-owned
subsidiaries Halkirk I Wind Project LP and Halkirk I Wind Project
Ltd., has closed the sale of its remaining 50% interest in the
construction-ready 150 MW Halkirk I Wind Project (”Halkirk I”) to
its joint venture partner, Capital Power L.P. (”Capital Power”) for
C$290,000 per MW. When combined with the amount paid by Capital
Power for the purchase of the initial 50% interest in Halkirk I
pursuant to the terms of the joint venture agreement, the total
consideration received by Greengate for the sale of Halkirk I was
C$33 million, paid in cash at closing. Capital Power now owns 100%
of Halkirk I.

The sale of href="">Greengate’s remaining 50%
interest in Halkirk I follows the joint venture and option
agreements previously entered into by Greengate and Capital Power
in 2010. Under the terms of those agreements, Capital Power had
conditionally agreed to purchase an initial 50% interest in Halkirk
I from Greengate, and
had an option to purchase a one-third interest in href="">Greengate’s
construction-ready 300 MW href="">
Blackspring Ridge I Wind Project (”Blackspring Ridge I”). As
part of the sale of Halkirk I, the option agreement relating to href="">
Blackspring Ridge I has been terminated allowing href="">Greengate to retain 100%
ownership of href="">
Blackspring Ridge I.

TD Securities Inc. and Jacob Securities Inc. acted as financial
advisors to Greengate
in connection with the sale of Halkirk I.

The sale of Halkirk I follows the closing of a private placement
financing by Greengate
in April 2011 for total gross proceeds of C$14.3 million. With
these two transactions completed, href="">Greengate has
strengthened its balance sheet.

“This sale demonstrates the significant value of href="">Greengate’s world-class,
Alberta-based wind energy projects,” said Dan Balaban, President
and CEO of Greengate.
“We have a strong balance sheet and will now focus our efforts on
Blackspring Ridge I, which is construction-ready and is
expected to be the largest operating wind energy project in Canada
upon completion in 2013.”
