ATLANTIC POWER CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(in millions U.S. dollars, except per-share amounts)

(Unaudited)

1. Nature of business

General

        Atlantic Power owns and operates a diverse fleet of power generation assets in the United States and Canada. Our power generation projects sell electricity to utilities and other large commercial customers largely under long-term power purchase agreements ("PPAs"), which seek to minimize exposure to changes in commodity prices. As of September 30, 2015, our power generation projects in operation had an aggregate gross electric generation capacity of approximately 2,141 megawatts ("MW") in which our aggregate ownership interest is approximately 1,504 MW. Our current portfolio consists of interests in twenty-three operational power generation projects across nine states in the United States and two provinces in Canada. Eighteen of our projects are majority-owned subsidiaries. These totals exclude an aggregate of 521 MWs from our previous 100% ownership interest in Meadow Creek Project Company, LLC ("Meadow Creek"), 99% ownership in Canadian Hills Wind, LLC ("Canadian Hills"), 50% ownership interest in Rockland Wind Farm, LLC ("Rockland"), 27.6% ownership interest in Idaho Wind Partners 1, LLC ("Idaho Wind") and 12.5% ownership interest in Goshen Phase II, LLC ("Goshen") (collectively, the "Wind Projects"), which we sold on June 26, 2015, and which are designated as discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.

        Atlantic Power is a corporation established under the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada on June 18, 2004 and continued to the Province of British Columbia on July 8, 2005. Our shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "ATP" and on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "AT." Our registered office is located at 215-10451 Shellbridge Way, Richmond, British Columbia V6X 2W8 Canada and our headquarters is located at 3 Allied Drive, Suite 220, Dedham, Massachusetts 02026, USA. Our telephone number in Dedham is (617) 977-2400 and the address of our website is www.atlanticpower.com. Information contained on Atlantic Power's website or that can be accessed through its website is not incorporated into and does not constitute a part of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. We have included our website address only as an inactive textual reference and do not intend it to be an active link to our website. We make available on our website, free of charge, our Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K, and amendments to those reports filed or furnished pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), as soon as reasonably practicable after we electronically file such material with, or furnish it to, the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Additionally, we make available on our website our Canadian securities filings, which are not incorporated by reference into our Exchange Act filings.

Basis of presentation

        The interim consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q have been prepared in accordance with the SEC regulations for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q. The following notes should be read in conjunction with the accounting policies and other disclosures as set forth in the notes to our financial statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year.

ATLANTIC POWER CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)

(in millions U.S. dollars, except per-share amounts)

(Unaudited)

1. Nature of business (Continued)

        In our opinion, the accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements present fairly our consolidated financial position as of September 30, 2015, the results of operations and comprehensive income (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, and our cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 in accordance with U.S generally accepted accounting policies. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals and other adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.

Use of estimates

        The preparation of financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the year. Actual results could differ from those estimates. During the periods presented, we have made a number of estimates and valuation assumptions, including the fair values of acquired assets, the useful lives and recoverability of property, plant and equipment, valuation of goodwill, intangible assets and liabilities related to PPAs and fuel supply agreements, the recoverability of equity investments, the recoverability of deferred tax assets, tax provisions, the fair value of financial instruments and derivatives, pension obligations, asset retirement obligations and equity-based compensation. In addition, estimates are used to test long-lived assets and goodwill for impairment and to determine the fair value of impaired assets. These estimates and valuation assumptions are based on present conditions and our planned course of action, as well as assumptions about future business and economic conditions. See "Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations—Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. As better information becomes available or actual amounts are determinable, the recorded estimates are revised. Should the underlying valuation assumptions and estimates change, the recorded amounts could change by a material amount.

Revision to the presentation of preferred shares issued by a subsidiary company

        The classification of preferred shares issued by a subsidiary company has been revised from total Atlantic Power Corporation shareholder's equity on the Consolidated Balance Sheets at December 31, 2014 to a separate line item in the noncontrolling interests section of equity. The revision does not impact total equity in either period presented. The revision was appropriate in order to properly present the preferred shares issued by a subsidiary company in the consolidated balance sheet. The revision is not considered material to any previously issued financial statements.

Recently issued accounting standards

    Adopted

        In April 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued changes to reporting discontinued operations and disclosures of disposals of components of an entity. These changes require a disposal of a component to meet a higher threshold in order to be reported as a discontinued

operation in an entity's financial statements. The threshold is defined as a strategic shift that has, or will have, a major effect on an entity's operations and financial results such as a disposal of a major geographical area or a major line of business. Additionally, the following two criteria have been removed from consideration of whether a component meets the requirements for discontinued operations presentation: (i) the operations and cash flows of a disposal component have been or will be eliminated from the ongoing operations of an entity as a result of the disposal transaction, and (ii) an entity will not have any significant continuing involvement in the operations of the disposal component after the disposal transaction. Furthermore, equity method investments now may qualify for discontinued operations presentation. These changes also require expanded disclosures for all disposals of components of an entity, whether or not the threshold for reporting as a discontinued operation is met, related to profit or loss information and/or asset and liability information of the component. These changes became effective on January 1, 2015 and were implemented when designating the Wind Projects as assets held for sale and discontinued operations on March 31, 2015. See Note 3, Discontinued operations.

    Issued

        In May 2014, the FASB issued new recognition and disclosure requirements for revenue from contracts with customers, which supersedes the existing revenue recognition guidance. The new recognition requirements focus on when the customer obtains control of the goods or services, rather than the current risks and rewards model of recognition. The core principle of the new standard is that an entity will recognize revenue when it transfers goods or services to its customers in an amount that reflects the consideration an entity expects to be entitled to for those goods or services. The new disclosure requirements will include information intended to communicate the nature, amount, timing and any uncertainty of revenue and cash flows from applicable contracts, including any significant judgments and changes in judgments and assets recognized from the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract. Entities will generally be required to make more estimates and use more judgment under the new standard. The new requirements will be effective for us beginning January 1, 2018, and may be implemented either retrospectively for all periods presented, or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of January 1, 2018. Early adoption is permitted, but not before January 1, 2017. Management is currently evaluating the potential impact of this new guidance on our consolidated financial statements and which implementation approach to select.

        In January 2015, the FASB issued changes to the presentation of extraordinary items. Such items are defined as transactions or events that are both unusual in nature and infrequent in occurrence, and, currently, are required to be presented separately in an entity's income statement, net of income tax, after income from continuing operations. The changes eliminate the concept of an extraordinary item and, therefore, the presentation of such items will no longer be required. Notwithstanding this change, an entity will still be required to present and disclose a transaction or event that is both unusual in nature and infrequent in occurrence in the notes to the financial statements. These changes become effective for us on January 1, 2016. We have determined that the adoption of these changes will not have an impact on the consolidated financial statements.

1. Nature of business (Continued)

        In February 2015, the FASB issued changes to the analysis that an entity must perform to determine whether it should consolidate certain types of legal entities. These changes (i) modify the evaluation of whether limited partnerships and similar legal entities are variable interest entities or voting interest entities, (ii) eliminate the presumption that a general partner should consolidate a limited partnership, (iii) affect the consolidation analysis of reporting entities that are involved with variable interest entities, particularly those that have fee arrangements and related party relationships, and (iv) provide a scope exception from consolidation guidance for reporting entities with interests in legal entities that are required to comply with or operate in accordance with requirements that are similar to those in Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 for registered money market funds. These changes become effective for us on January 1, 2016. We are currently evaluating the potential impact of these changes on the consolidated financial statements.

        In April 2015, the FASB issued changes to the presentation of debt issuance costs. Currently, such costs are required to be presented as a noncurrent asset in an entity's balance sheet and amortized into interest expense over the term of the related debt instrument. The changes require that debt issuance costs be presented in an entity's balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying value of the related debt liability. The amortization of debt issuance costs remains unchanged. These changes become effective for us on January 1, 2016. Management has determined that the adoption of these changes will result in a decrease of approximately $44.8 million based on the outstanding amount at September 30, 2015 to both deferred financing costs located in noncurrent assets and long-term debt on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

        In July 2015, the FASB issued changes to the subsequent measurement of inventory. Currently, an entity is required to measure its inventory at the lower of cost or market, whereby market can be replacement cost, net realizable value, or net realizable value less an approximately normal profit margin. The changes require that inventory be measured at the lower of cost and net realizable value, thereby eliminating the use of the other two market methodologies. Net realizable value is defined as the estimated selling prices in the ordinary course of business less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal, and transportation. These changes become effective for us on January 1, 2017. Management has determined that the adoption of these changes will not have an impact on the consolidated financial statements.

        In September 2015, the FASB issued new guidance on adjustments to provisional amounts recognized in a business combination, which are currently recognized on a retrospective basis. Under the new requirements, adjustments will be recognized in the reporting period in which the adjustments are determined. The effects of changes in depreciation, amortization, or other income arising from changes to the provisional amounts, if any, are included in earnings of the reporting period in which the adjustments to the provisional amounts are determined. An entity is also required to present separately on the face of the income statement or disclose in the notes the portion of the amount recorded in current-period earnings by line item that would have been recorded in previous reporting periods if the adjustment to the provisional amounts had been recognized as of the acquisition date. The new requirements will be effective for us beginning January 1, 2016, and are required to be implemented on a prospective basis. Early adoption is permitted. We will apply this new guidance to any future business combinations.

    Wind Projects

        On March 31, 2015, Atlantic Power Transmission, Inc. ("APT"), our wholly-owned, direct subsidiary, entered into a definitive agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with TerraForm AP Acquisition Holdings, LLC ("TerraForm"), an affiliate of SunEdison, Inc. (an affiliate of TerraForm Power, Inc.), to sell our Wind Projects. On June 26, 2015, the sale was completed for aggregate cash proceeds of approximately $335 million after transaction fees, exclusive of transaction-related taxes. We

recorded a $47.2 million gain on sale, which is included as a component of income from discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

        Terraform acquired from APT, 100% of APT's direct membership interests in a holding company formed to facilitate the sale, thereby acquiring our indirect interests in our portfolio of Wind Projects consisting of five operating wind projects in Idaho and Oklahoma and representing 521 MW net ownership: Goshen (12.5% economic interest), Idaho Wind (27.6% economic interest), Meadow Creek (100% economic interest); Rockland Wind Farm (50% economic interest, but consolidated on a 100% basis); and Canadian Hills (99% economic interest). As a result of the sale, we deconsolidated approximately $249 million of project debt (or approximately $274 million as adjusted for our proportional ownership of Rockland, Goshen North and Idaho Wind) and approximately $224 million of non-controlling interest related to tax equity interests at Canadian Hills and the minority ownership interests at Rockland and Canadian Hills.

        The Wind Projects were designated as assets held for sale and discontinued operations on March 31, 2015, the date we established a firm commitment to a plan to sell the wind assets. Our determination to designate the Wind Projects as discontinued operations was based on the impact the sale will have on our operations and financial results and because the Wind Projects made up the entirety of our Wind reportable Segment. We stopped depreciating the property, plant and equipment of the Wind Projects on the designation date.

    Greeley

        In March 2014, we closed a transaction with Initium Power Partners, LLC. ("Initium"), whereby Initium agreed to purchase all of the issued and outstanding membership interests in Greeley for approximately $1.0 million. We recorded a $2.1 million non-cash gain on the sale resulting from the write-off of asset retirement obligations in the consolidated statement of operations as of March 31, 2014. Greeley is accounted for as a component of discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

If Frontier achieves commercial operations and meets certain operating performance metrics, we could receive additional cash proceeds. We recorded a $2.3 million gain on sale related to the transaction in other income in the consolidated statements of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Frontier is not accounted for as a component of discontinued operations.

        In December 2012, we and the other owners of Delta-Person, entered into a purchase and sale agreement with BHB Power, LLC and Public Service Company of New Mexico to sell the project for approximately $37.2 million including working capital adjustments. The sale of Delta-Person closed in July 2014, resulting in a gain on sale of approximately $8.6 million that was recorded as a component of equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates in the consolidated statement of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014. We received net cash proceeds in July 2014 for our ownership interest of approximately $7.2 million in the aggregate. We received an additional $1.4 million of cash proceeds that were held in escrow in October 2015. Delta-Person is not accounted for as a component of discontinued operations.

    Notes of Atlantic Power Corporation

        On July 26, 2015, we redeemed all of our outstanding $310.9 million aggregate principal amount of 9.0% Senior Unsecured Notes due November 2018 (the "Notes") with the cash proceeds received from the sale of the Wind Projects. The Notes were redeemed at a price equal to 104.5 percent of the principal amount of the 9.0% notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date. We paid $330.4 million to fund the full redemption of the Notes, which includes $14.0 million in make-whole premiums and $5.5 million in accrued interest.

$9.0 million of deferred financing costs related to the Notes are included in interest expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.

    Non-Recourse Debt

        Project-level debt of our consolidated projects is secured by the respective project and its contracts with no other recourse to us. Project-level debt generally amortizes during the term of the respective revenue generating contracts of the projects. The loans have certain financial covenants that must be met in order to distribute available cash to Atlantic Power. At September 30, 2015, all of our projects with the exception of Piedmont and Selkirk were in compliance with the covenants contained in project-level debt. Projects that do not meet their debt service coverage ratios are limited from making distributions, but are not callable or subject to acceleration under the terms of their debt agreements. We do not expect our Piedmont project to meet its debt service coverage ratio covenants before 2017 at the earliest, due to continued operational issues that have resulted in higher forecasted maintenance and fuel expenses than initially expected. We expect Selkirk to meet its debt service coverage ratio in the next twelve months.

        During the fourth quarter of 2014, we announced a Normal Course Issuer Bid ("NCIB") for our convertible debentures. Under the NCIB, we entered into a pre-defined automatic securities purchase plan with our broker in order to facilitate purchases of our convertible debentures. The NCIB commenced on November 11, 2014 and will expire on November 10, 2015 or such earlier date as we complete our purchases pursuant to the NCIB. The actual amount of convertible debentures that may be purchased under the NCIB cannot exceed approximately $31.0 million and is further limited based on the outstanding principal of the individual outstanding tranches. Since inception of the NCIB in the fourth quarter of 2014 and through September 30, 2015, we have repurchased and cancelled $24.6 million aggregate principal amount of convertible debentures. We have recorded a gain of $3.0 million in the consolidated statement of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 representing the difference between the aggregate principal amount cancelled and the cash paid adjusted for the impact of foreign exchange rates.

        The fair values of our derivative instruments are based upon trades in liquid markets. Valuation model inputs can generally be verified and valuation techniques do not involve significant judgment. The fair values of such financial instruments are classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. We use our best estimates to determine the fair value of commodity and derivative contracts we hold. These estimates consider various factors including closing exchange prices, time value, volatility factors and credit exposure. The fair value of each contract is discounted using a risk free interest rate.

        We also adjust the fair value of financial assets and liabilities to reflect credit risk, which is calculated based on our credit rating and the credit rating of our counterparties. As of September 30, 2015, the credit valuation adjustments resulted in a $4.4 million net increase in fair value, which consists of a $0.4 million pre-tax gain in other comprehensive income and a $4.0 million gain in change in fair value of derivative instruments. As of December 31, 2014, the credit valuation adjustments

resulted in an $8.3 million net increase in fair value, which consists of a $0.7 million pre-tax gain in other comprehensive income and a $7.6 million gain in change in fair value of derivative instruments.

        The carrying amounts for cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.

8. Accounting for derivative instruments and hedging activities

        We recognize all derivative instruments on the balance sheet as either assets or liabilities and measure them at fair value in each reporting period. We have one contract designated as a cash flow hedge, and we defer the effective portion of the change in fair value of the derivatives in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), until the hedged transactions occur and are recognized in earnings (loss). The ineffective portion of a cash flow hedge is immediately recognized in earnings (loss). For our other derivatives that are not designated as cash flow hedges, the changes in the fair value are immediately recognized in earnings (loss). These guidelines apply to our natural gas swaps, interest rate swaps, and foreign exchange contracts.

    Gas purchase agreements

        Gas purchase agreements to purchase gas forward at our North Bay, Kapuskasing and Nipigon projects do not qualify for the normal purchase normal sales ("NPNS") exemption and are accounted for as derivative financial instruments. The gas purchase agreements at North Bay and Kapuskasing satisfy all of the forecasted fuel requirements for these projects through their expiration in the fourth quarter of 2016. The gas purchase agreement for Nipigon satisfies the majority of forecasted fuel requirements through December 31, 2022. These derivative financial instruments are recorded in the consolidated balance sheets at fair value and the changes in their fair market value are recorded in the consolidated statements of operations.

        In June 2014, Atlantic Power Limited Partnership (the "Partnership") entered into contracts for the purchase of 2.9 million Gigajoules ("Gj") of future natural gas purchases beginning on November 1, 2014 and expiring on December 31, 2017 for our projects in Ontario. These contracts effectively fix the price of approximately 100% of our expected uncontracted gas requirements for 2015 and 35% and 30% of our expected uncontracted gas requirements for 2016 and 2017, respectively. These contracts are accounted for as derivative financial instruments and are recorded in the consolidated balance sheet at fair value. Changes in the fair market value of these contracts are recorded in the consolidated statement of operations.

    Natural gas swaps

        Our strategy to mitigate future exposure to changes in natural gas prices at our projects consists of periodically entering into financial swaps that effectively fix the price of natural gas expected to be purchased at these projects. These natural gas swaps are derivative financial instruments and are recorded in the consolidated balance sheets at fair value and the changes in their fair market value are recorded in the consolidated statements of operations.

8. Accounting for derivative instruments and hedging activities (Continued)

        We have entered into various natural gas swaps to effectively fix the price of 6.3 million MMbtu of future natural gas purchases at Orlando, which is approximately 100% of our share of the expected on-peak natural gas purchases at the project through 2016 or approximately 96% and 64% of our share of the expected base load natural gas purchases for the remainder of 2015 and 2016, respectively. These contracts are accounted for as derivative financial instruments and are recorded in the consolidated balance sheet at fair value at September 30, 2015. Changes in the fair market value of these contracts are recorded in the consolidated statement of operations. On February 20, 2014, we paid $4.0 million to terminate certain of the natural gas contracts for our Orlando project in connection with the termination of our prior revolving credit facility. We recorded fuel expense related to the settlement of these contracts in the consolidated statement of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

    Interest rate swaps

        On May 5, 2014, the Partnership entered into interest rate swap agreements to mitigate exposure to changes in the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate for $199.0 million notional amount ($157.7 million at September 30, 2015) of the $600 million aggregate principal amount of borrowings ($484.9 million of borrowings at September 30, 2015) under the Term Loan Facility. Borrowings under the $600 million Term Loan Facility bear interest at a rate equal to the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate plus an applicable margin of 3.75%. Based on the terms of the Credit Agreement, the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate cannot be less than 1.00% resulting in a minimum of a 4.75% all-in rate on the Term Loan Facility. As a result of entering into the swap agreements, the all-in rate for $199.0 million of the Term Loan Facility cannot be less than 4.91% if the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate is equal to or greater than 1.00%. If the Adjusted Eurodollar Rate is below 1.00%, we will pay interest at a rate equivalent to the minimum 4.75% all-in rate plus any difference between the actual Adjusted Eurodollar Rate and 1.16%. The interest rate swap agreements were effective June 30, 2014 and terminate on December 29, 2017. The interest rate swap agreements are not designated as hedges and changes in their fair market value will be recorded in the consolidated statements of operations.

        The Piedmont project has interest rate swap agreements to economically fix its exposure to changes in interest rates related to its variable-rate debt. The interest rate swap agreement effectively converts the floating rate debt to a fixed interest rate of 1.7% plus an applicable margin ranging from 3.5% to 3.8% through February 29, 2016. From February 2016 until the maturity of the debt in August 2018, the fixed rate of the swap is 4.47% and the applicable margin is 4.0%, resulting in an all-in rate of 8.5%. The swap continues at the fixed rate of 4.47% until November 2030. Prior to conversion of the Piedmont construction loan facility to a term loan, the notional amounts of the interest rate swap agreements matched the estimated outstanding principal balance of Piedmont's construction loan facility. The interest rate swaps were executed on October 21, 2010 and November 2, 2010 and expire on February 29, 2016 and November 30, 2030, respectively. As a result of the Piedmont term loan conversion on February 14, 2014, these swap agreements were amended to reduce the notional amounts to match the outstanding $68.5 million principal of the term loan. The interest rate swap agreements are not designated as hedges, and changes in their fair market value are recorded in the consolidated statements of operations.

        The Cadillac project has an interest rate swap agreement that effectively fixes the interest rate at 6.0% through February 15, 2015, 6.1% from February 16, 2015 to February 15, 2019, 6.3% from February 16, 2019 to February 15, 2023, and 6.4% thereafter. The notional amount of the interest rate swap agreement matches the outstanding principal balance over the remaining life of Cadillac's debt. This swap agreement, which qualifies for and is designated as a cash flow hedge, is effective through June 2025 and the effective portion of the changes in the fair market value is recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss.

        Epsilon Power Partners, our wholly owned subsidiary, previously had an interest rate swap to economically fix the exposure to changes in interest rates related to the variable-rate non-recourse debt. The interest rate swap agreement effectively converted the floating rate debt to a fixed interest rate of 7.37% and had a maturity date of July 2019. The notional amount of the swap matched the outstanding principal balance over the remaining life of Epsilon Power Partners' debt. On February 20, 2014, we paid $2.6 million to terminate this contract in connection with the termination of our prior revolving credit facility. We recorded interest expense related to its settlement in the consolidated statement of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

    Foreign currency forward contracts

        From time to time, we use foreign currency forward contracts to manage our exposure to changes in foreign exchange rates, as many of our projects generate cash flow in U.S. dollars and Canadian dollars. On February 20, 2014, we paid $0.4 million to terminate all of our remaining foreign currency forward contracts in connection with the termination of our prior revolving credit facility and recorded their settlement in foreign exchange gain in the consolidated statement of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.

    Volume of forecasted transactions

        We have entered into derivative instruments in order to economically hedge the following notional volumes of forecasted transactions as summarized below, by type, excluding those derivatives that qualified for the NPNS exemption at September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014:

9. Income taxes (Continued)

For the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014

        Income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $1.4 million. The expected income tax benefit for the same period, based on the Canadian enacted statutory rate of 26%, was $0.5 million. The primary items impacting the tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2015 were $4.0 million relating to a change in valuation allowance, and $2.8 million related to a capital gain on repatriation of wind sale proceeds. These items were partially offset by $2.6 million of dividend withholding and other taxes, $2.2 million related to foreign exchange and $0.1 million of other permanent differences.

        Income tax expense for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $1.4 million. The expected income tax benefit for the same period, based on the Canadian enacted statutory rate of 26%, was $21.4 million. The primary items impacting the tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2014 were $33.7 million relating to goodwill impairment, $5.1 million relating to a change in the valuation allowance and $0.6 million of other permanent differences. These items were partially offset by $8.3 million relating to operating in higher tax rate jurisdictions, $4.8 million of intra-period allocations from the wind projects, $3.5 million relating to foreign exchange and $2.6 million of minority interest adjustments.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014

        Income tax benefit for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $0.3 million. The expected income tax expense for the same period, based on the Canadian enacted statutory rate of 26%, was $0.3 million. The primary items impacting the tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 were $6.3 million relating to foreign exchange, $4.0 million relating to operating in higher tax rate jurisdictions, $3.6 million related to tax credits and $0.6 million of other permanent differences. These items were partially offset by $10.1 million relating to a change in the valuation allowance, $2.8 million related to a capital gain on repatriation of wind sale proceeds and $1.0 million relating to dividend withholding and other taxes.

        Income tax benefit for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $20.0 million. The expected income tax benefit for the same period, based on the Canadian enacted statutory rate of 26%, was $43.2 million. The primary items impacting the tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 were $34.4 million relating to a change in the valuation allowance, $33.7 million relating to goodwill impairment, and $0.2 million of other permanent differences. These items were partially offset by $17.9 million relating to operating in higher tax rate jurisdictions, $11.9 million of intraperiod allocations from the wind projects, $10.6 million of capital losses recognized on tax restructuring and $4.7 million relating to foreign exchange.

Valuation allowance

        As of September 30, 2015, we have recorded a valuation allowance of $178.7 million. The amount is comprised primarily of provisions against Canadian and U.S. net operating loss carryforwards. In assessing the recoverability of our deferred tax assets, we consider whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred

10. Equity compensation plans

    Long-term incentive plan ("LTIP")

        The following table summarizes the changes in outstanding LTIP notional units during the nine months ended September 30, 2015:

    1,340,305   $ 2.88  

        Certain awards have a market condition based on our total shareholder return during the performance period as compared to a group of peer companies and, in some cases, Project Adjusted EBITDA per common share compared to budget. Compensation expense for notional units granted is recorded net of estimated forfeitures. See Note 16 to the consolidated financial statements in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 for further details. Cash payments made for vested notional units for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 were $1.0 million and $0.2 million, respectively. Compensation expense for LTIP was $1.0 million and $2.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively, and $0.9 million and $1.8 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively.

    Transition Equity Participation Agreement

        We also have 542,606 transition notional shares outstanding at September 30, 2015 under the Transition Equity Participation Agreement with James J. Moore, Jr. Fifty percent of the transition notional shares granted with respect to fiscal year 2015 will vest upon the four-year anniversary of the date of grant and the remaining portion will vest on or any time after the two-year anniversary of the grant if the weighted average Canadian dollar closing price of our common shares on the TSX for at least three consecutive calendar months has exceeded the market price per common share determined as of January 22, 2015 ($2.58) by at least 50%.

11. Basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share

        Basic earnings (loss) per share is calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average common shares outstanding during their respective period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed including dilutive potential shares as if they were outstanding shares during the year. Dilutive

potential shares include the weighted average number of shares, as of the date such notional units were granted, that would be issued if the unvested notional units outstanding under the LTIP were vested and redeemed for shares under the terms of the LTIP.

        Because we reported a loss for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, diluted earnings per share are equal to basic earnings per share as the inclusion of potentially dilutive shares in the computation is anti-dilutive.

        The following table sets forth the diluted net income and potentially dilutive shares utilized in the per share calculation for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014:

Potentially dilutive shares from convertible debentures of 27.7 million and 27.7 million have been excluded from fully diluted shares in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, respectively, because their impact would be anti-dilutive.

13. Segment and geographic information

        We have four reportable segments: East U.S., West U.S., Canada and Un-Allocated Corporate. We revised our reportable business segments in the second quarter of 2015 as the result of recent significant asset sales and in order to align with changes in management's structure, resource allocation and performance assessment in making decisions regarding our operations. The Wind Projects, which made up the entirety of the former Wind segment, were sold in June 2015 and are designated as discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2015. Our financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 have been revised to reflect these changes in operating segments. We analyze the performance of our operating segments based on Project Adjusted EBITDA which is defined as project income (loss) plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (including non-cash impairment charges) and changes in fair value of derivative instruments. Project Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure recognized under GAAP and does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. We use Project Adjusted EBITDA to provide comparative information about project performance without considering how projects are capitalized or whether they contain derivative contracts that are required to be recorded at fair value. Our equity investments in unconsolidated affiliates are presented as proportionately consolidated based on our ownership percentage in the reconciliation of Project Adjusted EBITDA to project income (loss).

        A reconciliation of Project Adjusted EBITDA to project income (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2015 reflecting our revised reportable business segments is included in the table below:
