Aug 12 (Reuters) - Canadian power producer Maxim Power Corp MXG.TO narrowed its second-quarter loss, but slashed its full-year earnings forecast, citing reduction in electricity prices in Alberta and reduced margins in the United States.

The Alberta-based company now expects earnings of C$7.8 million, or 14 Canadian cents a share. It had previously pegged its earnings at C$14.5 million, or 27 Canadian cents a share.

For the second-quarter, net loss was C$4.3 million ($3.95 million), or 8 Canadian cents a share, compared with C$6.1 million, or 14 Canadian cents a share, a year earlier.

Maxim said average power price in Alberta had more than halved to C$33 per megawatt hours in the last one year.

Revenue rose about 27 percent to C$18.85 million.

Shares of Maxim Power closed at C$2.61 Thursday on the Toronto Stock Exchange. They have fallen over 50 percent in the past one year. ($1=1.088 Canadian dollar) (Reporting by Amit Kumar in Bangalore; Editing by Anil D‘Silva)
