(Pattern Development 1.0), the Company, Pattern
Energy Group Holdings LP (solely with respect to Article IV

The AR 1.0 PRA modifies certain terms of the Original 1.0 PRA by,
among other things, (a) expanding our first offer rights with

projects that Pattern Development 1.0 decides to sell (other than
certain projects that have been designated for transfer to
Pattern Energy Group 2 LP (Pattern Development
2.0
and together with Pattern Development 1.0,
Pattern Development)) (which we refer to as our
1.0 Project Rights) by allowing us to submit a
Final Rights Project Offer (as defined therein) in the event
Pattern Development 1.0 rejects a First Rights Project Offer (as
defined therein) or we decline to submit a First Rights Project
Offer; (b) allowing us to assign our right to submit a Final
Rights Project Offer to Public Sector Pension Investment Board
(PSP Investments) as contemplated by the Joint

(i) we deliver to Pattern Development 1.0 three First Rights

operational or construction-ready projects (other than the Conejo
Project (as defined therein)) for which no Final Rights Project
Offer is made or (ii) Pattern Development 1.0 is wound up in
accordance with its governing documents; (d) specifying that, if
Pattern Development 1.0 rejects our offer to acquire a project,
such project can only be sold to a third party at a price that,
in addition to being greater than or equal to 105% of our offer
price (which was an existing requirement under the Original 1.0
PRA), is also greater than the Final Offer Price (as defined
therein), if any and (e) setting forth a form of Purchase and
Sale Agreement for acquisitions of projects to the AR 1.0 PRA.

The AR 1.0 PRA was recommended by the Conflicts Committee of our
Board of Directors, which is comprised solely of independent
directors, for approval by our Board of Directors, and was
subsequently approved by our Board of Directors.

A copy of the AR 1.0 PRA is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and

Amended and Restated Pattern Development 2.0 Purchase
Rights Agreement

On June 16, 2017, we entered into the Amended and Restated
Purchase Rights Agreement (the AR 2.0 PRA and
together with the AR 1.0 PRA, the AR PRAs) that

The AR 2.0 PRA modifies certain terms of the Original 2.0 PRA by,
among other things, (a) expanding our first offer rights with
respect to power generation, storage or transmission facilities
or projects that Pattern Development 2.0 decides to sell (which
we refer to as our 2.0 Project Rights and,
together with the 1.0 Project Rights, the Project
Rights
) by allowing us to submit a Final Rights Project
Offer (as defined therein) in the event Pattern Development 2.0
rejects a First Rights Project Offer (as defined therein) or we
decline to submit a First Rights Project Offer; (b) allowing us
to assign our right to submit a Final Rights Project Offer to PSP
Investments as contemplated by the Joint Venture Agreement; (c)

acquire the applicable project or PEG 2.0

Interest, by, among other things, (i) increasing the clearing

in the case of a project, requiring that it be sold at a price

96% of the Project Offer Price or PEG 2 LP Offer Price, as
applicable, if Pattern Development 2.0 or PEGH 2, as applicable,
does not enter into a definitive agreement to sell such project
or PEG 2.0 Interest to a third party at a price equal to or
greater than the clearing price within six months following its
rejection of our offer (or does not consummate such transaction
within twelve months following its rejection of our offer); (d)
amending the term of our 2.0 Project Rights so that such rights
survive until Pattern Development 2.0 is wound up in accordance
with its governing documents; (e) giving us the right to acquire
any Early Stage Project or Mid-Stage Project (as such terms are
defined therein) that is abandoned by Pattern Development 2.0 at
a price equal to Pattern Development 2.0s cost basis in such

earn-out payment to be paid to Pattern Development 2.0 if we
subsequently sell such project to a third party) and requiring

The AR 2.0 PRA was recommended by the Conflicts Committee of our
Board of Directors, which is comprised solely of independent
directors, for approval by our Board of Directors, and was
subsequently approved by our Board of Directors.

A copy of the AR 2.0 PRA is attached as Exhibit 10.2 hereto and
is incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing descriptions
of the Original 2.0 PRA and the AR 2.0 PRA do not purport to be
complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the
Original 2.0 PRA 8-K and Exhibit 10.2 hereto, respectively.

Second Amended and Restated Non-Competition
Agreement

On June 16, 2017, we entered into the Second Amended and Restated
Non-Competition Agreement, by and among Pattern Development 1.0,
the Company and Pattern Development 2.0 (the Second AR
Non-Competition Agreement
), which further amends and
restates the Amended and Restated Non-Competition Agreement,
dated as of December 8, 2016, by and among Pattern Development
1.0, the Company and Pattern Development 2.0 (the
Original Non-Competition Agreement), which was
filed as Exhibit 10.3 to the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K
(File No. 001-36087) filed on December 14, 2016 (the
Original Non-Competition Agreement 8-K) and is
incorporated by reference herein. The Second AR Non-Competition
Agreement, among other things, grants Pattern Development 2.0 the
exclusive right to pursue all power generation, storage or
transmission development projects in the US, Canada and Mexico
that have not completed construction, other than (a) development
activities related to the expansion, improvement, enhancement, or
protection of an existing power generation, transmission or
storage facility that we may, directly or indirectly, manage or
majority own from time to time; (b) continued development by
Pattern Development 1.0 of projects not transferred to Pattern
Development 2.0; (c) development projects acquired by us or PSP
Investments to the AR PRAs and (d) projects that have achieved or
issued, or are likely to achieve or issue within thirty days of
closing an acquisition of such project, readiness for
construction financing or issuance of full notice to proceed. The
Second AR Non-Competition Agreement does not restrict us from
acquiring any company or business that is principally engaged in
the business of owning and operating renewable energy facilities.
However, if we desire to purchase a portfolio of projects that
contains a mix of development, construction and/or operating
projects, we are required to reasonably cooperate with Pattern
Development 2.0 to divide such portfolio so that Pattern
Development 2.0 may acquire the development projects in such
portfolio and we may acquire the construction and operating
projects in such portfolio. At any time that Tokyo, Japan-based
Green Power Investment Corporation (Green Power)
is majority owned by either us, Pattern Development 1.0 or
Pattern Development 2.0, the Second AR Non-Competition Agreement
grants such majority owner exclusive development rights over
power generation, storage or transmission projects in Japan
(subject to the same exceptions set forth above in clauses (a)
through (d) and the above provisions regarding operating
businesses and the division of project portfolios). Pattern
Development 1.0 currently owns a majority interest in Green
Power.

The Second AR Non-Competition Agreement shall terminate (a) with
respect to Pattern Development 1.0, upon the termination of our
collective purchase rights under the AR 1.0 PRA and (b) with
respect to Pattern Development 2.0, upon the termination of our
collective purchase rights under the AR 2.0 PRA or the earlier

wind-up of Pattern Development 2.0 or the valid rejection by
Pattern Development 2.0 of three or more First Rights Project
Offers (as defined in the AR 2.0 PRA) representing a cumulative
net capacity of at least 600 megawatts.

The Second AR Non-Competition Agreement was recommended by the
Conflicts Committee of our Board of Directors, which is comprised
solely of independent directors, for approval by our Board of
Directors, and was subsequently approved by our Board of
Directors.

A copy of the Second AR Non-Competition Agreement is attached as
Exhibit 10.3 hereto and is incorporated by reference herein. The
foregoing description of the Original Non-Competition Agreement
and the Second AR Non-Competition Agreement do not purport to be
complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the
Original Non-Competition Agreement 8-K and Exhibit 10.3 hereto,
respectively.

Amended and Restated Multilateral Management Services
Agreement

On June 16, 2017, we entered into the Amended and Restated
Multilateral Management Services Agreement (the AR
MMSA
) that amended and restated that certain
Multilateral Management Services Agreement, dated as of December
8, 2016, by and among the Company, Pattern Development 1.0 and
Pattern Development 2.0 (the Original MMSA),
which was filed as Exhibit 10.2 to the Companys Current Report on
Form 8-K (File No. 001-36087) filed on December 14, 2016 (the
Original MMSA 8-K) and is incorporated by
reference herein.

The AR MMSA amends certain provisions of the Original MMSA in
order to, among other things, (a) allow Pattern Development 2.0
to, in the event of a failure by the service provider to provide
adequate resources and services as set forth therein, (i) in the
case of a failure by Pattern Development 1.0, take over the
performance of the management services contemplated to be
performed by Pattern Development 1.0 thereby, (ii) cause the
service provider to hire additional development personnel, (iii)
in the case of a failure by us, suspend us from taking on certain
further developments or (iv) initiate a wind down of Pattern
Development 2.0; (b) allow Pattern Development 2.0 to effect a
PEG 2 Transition (as defined therein) (whereby Pattern
Development 2.0 can cause Pattern Development 1.0 to cause its
employees to become employees of Pattern Development 2.0),
provided that Pattern Development 2.0 shall not exercise such
right if we have provided Pattern Development 2.0 with written
notice that we intend to effect a PEG 1 Employee Reintegration
(as defined therein and described below) within six months, (c)
amend the circumstances in which we can effect a PEG 1 Employee
Reintegration (whereby we can cause Pattern Development 1.0 to
cause its employees to become our employees) by removing the
December 31, 2017 expiration date for such right and instead
allowing us to effect a PEG 1 Employee Reintegration after the
earliest to occur of (x) the date that Pattern Development 1.0
provides us with written notice that it will complete a wind-down
within six months, (y) June 16, 2020 and (z) a PEG 1 Services
Failure (as defined therein); (d) allow us to effect a PEG 2
Employee Reintegration (as defined therein) (whereby we can
require Pattern Development 2.0 to cause its employees to become
our employees) at any time after the earliest to occur of (A) the
date Pattern Development 2.0 notifies Pattern Development 1.0 it
will exercise its right to cause a PEG 2 Transition (as described
above) but before such PEG 2 Transition occurs, (B) June 16,
2020, (C) a PEG 2 Services Failure (as defined therein) and (D)
the initiation of a wind-up of Pattern Development 2.0; (e)
provide us the exclusive right, but not the obligation, to
provide services to the MOMAs and PAAs (each as defined therein)
for projects developed by Pattern Development 1.0 or Pattern
Development 2.0 and (f) amend the term of the agreement such that
the AR MMSA survives, with respect to each of Pattern Development
1.0 and Pattern Development 2.0, until a wind-up of the
applicable entity to its governing documents, unless terminated
earlier to the terms of the AR MMSA.

The AR MMSA was recommended by the Conflicts Committee of our
Board of Directors, which is comprised solely of independent
directors, for approval by our Board of Directors, and was
subsequently approved by our Board of Directors.

A copy of the AR MMSA is attached as Exhibit 10.4 hereto and is
incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing description of
the Original MMSA and AR MMSA do not purport to be complete and
are qualified in their entirety by reference to the Original MMSA
8-K and Exhibit 10.4 hereto, respectively.

Investment in PEGH 2

On June 16, 2017, we entered into the Second Amended and Restated
Agreement of Limited Partnership of PEGH 2, dated as of June 16,
2017, by and among PEGH 2, the Class A Limited Partners set forth
therein and the

Class B Limited Partners set forth therein (the AR PEGH 2
LPA
). Pattern Development 2.0 is a wholly owned
subsidiary of PEGH 2. In July 2017, PEGH 2 is expected to receive
funds to a capital call under the AR PEGH 2 LPA (the
Initial PEGH 2 Capital Call) from new limited
partners (including us) in PEGH 2 (the New PEGH 2
Investors
) to, among other things, (a) redeem
approximately 49% of the total ownership interests held by
existing limited partners in PEGH 2 (the Legacy PEGH 2
Investors
), (b) acquire certain development assets from
Pattern Development 1.0, and (c) provide working capital for
general business purposes. After the funding of the Initial PEGH2
Capital Call (in which only the New PEGH 2 Investors will
participate) and the consummation of the foregoing redemption of
the Legacy PEGH 2 Investors ownership interests, the Legacy PEGH
2 Investors will hold approximately 31% of the total ownership
interests in PEGH 2 (with the remaining approximately 69% of the
total ownership interests in PEGH 2 being held by the New PEGH 2
Investors). In connection with the Initial PEGH2 Capital Call, we
anticipate making an initial capital contribution to PEGH 2 of
approximately $60,000,000 (equating to approximately 29% of the
total Initial PEGH 2 Capital Call), in exchange for an
approximately 20% ownership interest in PEGH 2 (equating to
approximately 29% of the 69% ownership interest in PEGH 2 held by
the New PEGH 2 Investors immediately after the Initial PEGH 2
Capital Call). Under the AR PEGH 2 LPA, we have also committed to
contribute up to an additional approximately $240,000,000 to PEGH
2 in one or more subsequent rounds of financing, which could
result in our ownership interest in PEGH 2 increasing to up to
approximately 29%. If we do not participate in such subsequent
rounds of financing, our ownership interest in PEGH 2 may be
diluted on a pro rata basis based on fair market value.
We also have certain rights under the AR PEGH 2 LPA to cause the
dissolution of PEGH 2, including (a) at any time following the
fifth anniversary of the date PEGH 2 issues its first capital
call on or after June 16, 2017 and (b) at any time following PEGH
2s board of directors rejection of three or more of our First
Rights Project Offers or First Rights PEG 2 LP Offers (each as
defined in the AR 2.0 PRA) representing a cumulative net capacity
of at least 600 megawatts.

The entry into the AR PEGH 2 LPA was recommended by the Conflicts
Committee of our Board of Directors, which is comprised solely of
independent directors, for approval by our Board of Directors,
and was subsequently approved by our Board of Directors.

A copy of the AR PEGH 2 LPA is attached as Exhibit 10.5 hereto
and is incorporated by reference herein. The foregoing
description of the AR PEGH 2 LPA does not purport to be complete
and is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibit.

On June 16, 2017, we entered into a Joint Venture Agreement (the

right to co-invest up to an aggregate amount of approximately
$500,000,000 (the PSP Investments Co-Investment
Amount
) alongside us in energy projects we may acquire
to our rights under the AR PRAs (with PSP Investments acquiring,
at its election on a project-by-project basis, either (x) 30% or
(y) a greater percentage that we may elect to offer to PSP
Investments, of our combined ownership interest in such project);
(b) PSP Investments will reasonably cooperate with us to complete
third party acquisitions and to arrange for or provide bridge
loans and construction financing for certain projects that PSP
Investments will invest in alongside us (although PSP Investments
has no commitment to provide any such financing) and (c) we may
add a person that has been designated by PSP Investments to our
Board of Directors promptly following the PSP Compliance Date (as
defined therein). The purchase price paid by PSP Investments
under each of the Meikle PSA, the MSM PSA and the PH2 PSA (each
defined below) will be applied towards the PSP Investments
Co-Investment Amount. Under the Joint Venture Agreement we have
also agreed to, in certain limited circumstances, allow PSP
Investments to cause the early termination of contracts between
PEGI and a jointly owned project, including the Sponsor Services
Agreement (defined below) and the applicable MOMAs and PAAs (as
defined therein) and have waived any early termination fees in
those circumstances. In connection with the Joint Venture
Agreement and the PEGI Share Acquisition (defined below), PSP
Investments also agreed to a customary standstill for a period of
twelve months.

The Joint Venture Agreement was recommended by the Conflicts
Committee of our Board of Directors, which is comprised solely of
independent directors, for approval by our Board of Directors,
and was subsequently approved by our Board of Directors.

Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers;
Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers;
Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

During the course of planning and structuring the transactions
contemplated by the agreements described in Item 1.01, in light
of the additional workload required by each of Michael J. Lyon
and Esben W. Pedersen, who serve as the Companys chief financial
officer and chief investment officer, respectively, the
Nominating, Governance, and Compensation Committee and our Board

A consideration of the base salaries of Mr. Lyon and Mr.
Pedersen compared to persons holding comparable positions at
the Companys peers;

Mr. Lyon and Mr. Pedersen in connection with the planning,
structuring, negotiation, and execution of the agreements

agreements described under Item 1.01; and
A special one-time cash bonus of $250,000.

in Chile or funds that might otherwise be invested in Chile
in a more productive manner elsewhere that could generate a
higher return on investment, we may decide to exit Chile for
other opportunities with greater potential. In addition,
