Welcome to Chebucto Pockwock Community Wind

ABOUT THE COMMUNITY WIND PROJECT

Pockwock Wind Limited Partnership owns and operates a wind energy generation facility located 25km northeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Halifax Regional Water Authority land. The project consists of five wind turbines with a nameplate capacity of 10 megawatts (MW). The project is a joint venture between Chebucto Pockwock Lake Wind Field Limited and Firelight Infrastructure Partners L.P.

The five 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.
