Conservative Holding Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. (TSX: BEP-U, NYSE: BEP) is lower by about 11 percent in US dollar terms this year.

The deal brought its regulated global utility customer base to over 43 million, including San Diego G&E, Southern California Gas and 6 million users in Chile and Peru.
