(TSX: FVR) signed an agreement with Pattern Renewable Holdings Canada ULC, a subsidiary of Pattern Energy Group LP, for the sale of the company's 300 MW British Columbia wind project portfolio for approximately C$40 million ($40.5 million) subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals.

Under the terms of the agreement, Pattern has agreed to refinance up to C$9 million ($9.1 million) of corporate debt, fund certain development costs going forward and provide a further debt facility to the company at a rate of 10 percent, all of which will be applied against the purchase price at closing of the acquisition of the projects.
