The monthly dividend will be payable on August 30 to Atlantic Power shareholders of record on July 31, with non-Canadians subject to a 15% to 25% withholding tax rate.

Despite the decrease, a subsequent drop in stock price has kept its overall yield significantly above average. At its current $4.41 share price, the utility's annual dividend yield clocks in around 8.7%.
