Since I own 200 shares of BEPC, this will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income by $10.43.

The increase was in line with my expectations.

This is the fourth dividend increase I've received from Brookfield Renewable since initiating a position in February 2019. During this period, the dividend has increased moderately from $0.274 to $0.3375 or 23.2%.

This increase raises my YOC to 5.22%.
