Welcome to Whynotts Community Wind

ABOUT THE COMMUNITY WIND PROJECT

Whynotts Wind Limited Partnership owns and operates a wind energy generation facility located 5km east of Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, on private land. The project consists of two wind turbines with a nameplate capacity of 4 megawatts (MW). The project is a joint venture between the Eskasoni First Nation and Firelight Infrastructure Partners L.P.

The two turbines that make up the project were supplied, installed, and continue to be maintained by Vestas, a global leader in the wind energy industry. In addition, Rotor Mechanical Services Ltd, a local Nova Scotia company, provides support and oversight of the day-to-day operations. Dream Renewables Management LP provides accounting and administration services to the project. 

The project is part of the Nova Scotia Department of Energy’s Community Feed-In-Tariff (COMFIT) program, and began supplying energy to Nova Scotia Power in January 2015. The energy produced is enough to power thousands of homes with stable, local and clean renewable energy.
