VANCOUVER, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Finavera Wind Energy Inc. ('Finavera
Wind Energy', 'Finavera' or the 'Company') (TSX-V: FVR) is pleased to announce
it has received a final $16.5 million of consideration, primarily in the form
of debt forgiveness, from Pattern Renewable Holdings Canada ULC, a subsidiary
of Pattern Energy Group LP ('Pattern Development') as the final amount payable
under the Purchase and Sale Agreement for 184 megawatts (MW) of wind projects,
previously announced on April 29^th, 2013. The final consideration has been
received earlier than the anticipated date in Q1 2015, based in part on the
successful development of the Meikle Project. The $16.5 million consideration
is in addition to the $9.3 million previously received by the Company from
Pattern Development as previously announced on April 17^th, 2014.

The receipt of the final payment from Pattern Development was used primarily
to retire secured debt in the Company. Combined with the recent sale of the
Company's remaining 10% interest in the Cloosh Valley Wind Project for €2.1
million, this transaction is another step towards a stronger balance sheet and
the ability to capitalize on new opportunities in the renewable energy
marketplace. Further information on the Company's strategic plan will be
released in advance of the Company's AGM on September 12^th, 2014.
