Proposed Higgins Mountain Wind Farm Development

In 2007, 3G organized a bid into a Nova Scotia Power Inc competitive renewable energy procurement, proposing a 100MW wind farm to be located at Higgins Mountain, Nova Scotia on forestry company lands. A copy of the environmental assessment done in 2007 is available here

In 2017, 3G and its two partners, Katalyst Wind Inc and Elemental Energy, along with EMERA organized a bid into a Massachusetts competitive renewable energy procurement for a 150 MW wind farm at Higgins Mountain. EMERA was the bidder for its proposed Atlantic Link undersea cable going from New Brunswick to Boston, MA, aggregating energy from 6 wind projects in New Brunswick and 1 wind project in Nova Scotia. The proposed delivery date for this project was December 2022 but EMERA was not selected as the winning bidder with its Atlantic Link submission. Going forward and using modern turbines, the proposed new Higgins Mountain project will eventually involve significantly fewer machines compared to the 2007 concept and it will address local concerns regarding project scale and location of wind turbine generators.

There will be announcements in late 2018 regarding forthcoming stakeholder engagement initiatives.
