DEREGISTRATION OF SHARES

On October 9, 2013, Pattern Energy Group Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), filed a Registration Statement on Form S-8 (File No. 333-191641) (the “Registration Statement”) registering 3,000,000 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), to be issued to participants under the Pattern Energy Group Inc. 2013 Equity Incentive Award Plan. This Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to the Registration Statement (this “Post-Effective Amendment”) is being filed to deregister all shares of Common Stock that had been registered and remain unsold under the Registration Statement.

On November 3, 2019, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Pacific US Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Parent”), and Pacific BidCo US Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), providing for, among other things, the merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company, with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”). The Merger became effective on March 16, 2020, upon the filing of the certificate of merger with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.

As a result of the Merger, the Company has terminated all offerings of its securities pursuant to the Registration Statement. In accordance with an undertaking made by the Company in the Registration Statement to remove from registration, by means of a post-effective amendment, any securities that had been registered but remain unsold at the termination of the offering, the Company hereby amends the Registration Statement to remove from registration all shares of Common Stock registered under the Registration Statement that remain unsold as of the date of this Post-Effective Amendment.
