Our Projects

You will find a list of our renewable energy projects below. Many of our projects are 100% owned by Glooscap Energy but some of them are partnerships with other developers. 

Glooscap Landing Solar Array

Located on the roof and canopy of a Glooscap owned gas station, this solar array is our first renewable project and can power up to 3 average homes. The project is a 25kw system and was installed in 2018 in the Hantsport area of Nova Scotia.  

All energy produced is sold to Nova Scotia Power.

Seakist Solar Array

This array is located on the roof of Seakist Lobster, a Glooscap owned lobster pound in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. This solar array can power up to 17 average homes and is 75kw. This array was built in 2021.

All energy produced is sold to Nova Scotia Power.

Glooscap Landing EV Charging

In 2016 Glooscap installed two EV charging stations at Glooscap Landing, including one of the first level 3 DC chargers in Nova Scotia. Glooscap partnered with Nova Scotia Power to make this a reality and the site was used as a testing grounds for the future NSPI EV charging network. Learn more here.

Weavers Mountain Wind Project

The Weavers Mountain Wind Energy Project is a proposed renewable energy facility with a total capacity of 94 MW. The project will be comprised of 16 turbines with a nameplate capacity between 4.5 MW and 6 MW. The facility would be located along the Pictou/Antigonish County lines, south of Trans-Canada Highway 104.   This project will have the ability to power up to 33,000 homes and should be operational by 2025.   

 

The project is developed by a partnership of Glooscap Energy and SWEB Development, a North American subsidiary of W.E.B. Group. Glooscap is 51% owners of this project.

Wind Turbines

Amherst Wind Farm

Located near Amherst Nova Scotia, this farm consists of two wind turbines with a total capacity of 6 MW. Glooscap is in partnership with the other 12 Mi'kmaq communities in Nova Scotia to own majority of this project. The minority partner in this farm is Natural Forces. 

Wind Turbines

Whynotts Wind Farm

Located on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, this farm consists of two wind turbines with a total capacity of 4 MW. Glooscap is in partnership with the other 12 Mi'kmaq communities in Nova Scotia to own majority of this project. The minority partner in this farm is Potentia Renewables. 

Wind Mills

Benjamin Mills Wind Project

This proposed wind project would be located about 10kms from Glooscap First Nation and would be owned in partnership with Natural Forces and the other 12 Mi'kmaw communities of Nova Scotia through the Wskijnu'k Mtmo'taqnuow Agency which Glooscap is a partner of. Phase 1 of this project consists of 8 turbines representing approximately 34 MW of installed capacity. This project is expected to be completed in 2024/2025.

Glooscap Landing Micro-Grid

In early 2022 Glooscap Energy was approved for a second solar array on Glooscap Landing. Glooscap is currently working to add an additional 115kw of solar energy to the Glooscap Landing project. This project will be integrated into our proposed micro-grid system that will include battery storage and EV charging.
