Invenergy has successfully developed more than 200 projects, including wind, solar, transmission infrastructure, green hydrogen, natural gas power generation and advanced energy storage projects.
The Laconia Wind Energy Centre is a
proposed utility scale wind energy facility in Laconia, Nova
Scotia. The Project has been in development since the end of 2021, and was conceived in response to the province’s push to decarbonize the grid by procuring large-scale renewable energy projects through competitive requests for proposal
Fall 2023 Project Update:
Throughout project development, Invenergy works closely with project stakeholders to refine and design the project area. We received feedback from local stakeholders, consulted with the Municipality of the District of Lunenberg, conducted desktop environmental studies, and heard from landowners who were interested in participating in the Project.
Current Area of Consideration is as shown on the following map:
We invite you to consult the latest news about the Laconia Project and would gladly receive any feedback and/or comments on our Project.
In 2021, the Premier pledged to obtain 80% of the Province’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030. Part of this commitment will be reached through competitive procurements. This Project could be submitted to the Green Choice Program https://novascotiagcp.com/.
Under this program, the Province of Nova Scotia intends to procure 350 megawatts (MW) of new renewable energy in maximum project sizes of 150 MW. For reference, individual wind turbines currently being constructed typically generate between 4.5 and 6.5 MW.
In addition to supporting Nova Scotia's clean energy goals, these procurements will encourage investment and create jobs.
The Procurement Administrator, appointed by the Province, conducts the request for proposals (RFP) process to identify the most competitive low-impact renewable energy projects. These projects will be awarded Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with Nova Scotia Power Inc. (NSPI) to supply renewable electricity generation for their customers.
