TORONTO, April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - The Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (Teachers') today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell all of its 50% ownership interest in Northern Star Generation LLC (NSG) to GulfSun Power Holdings, LLC (GulfSun), an affiliate of Harbert Management Corporation (Harbert).
