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.
Another 200kw of power power is being installed in 2024.
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.
Another 400kw is currently under construction.
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.

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 200 kw 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.
Yarmouth Bar Net-Metering Solar Project
Starting in 2023 and finishing in 2024 this 409 kw system will help offset 75% of Yarmouth Bar Fisheries energy consumption. This project is currently under construction.
The energy projects listed below are owned and operated by Wskijinu'k Mtmo'taqnuow Agency also known as "WMA". WMA is a partnership of all 13 Nova Scotia Mi'kmaq communities.
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 through the Wskijinu'k Mtmo'taqnuow Agency (WMA). The minority partner in this farm is Natural Forces.
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 through the Wskijinu'k Mtmo'taqnuow Agency (WMA). The minority partner in this farm is Potentia Renewables.
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.
