Some day our kids might ask what we did to make the world a greener place. With these turbines, we’ll have an answer.

These turbines supplied 3,185 homes with energy last year alone.
Scotian Wind has presented project updates at the public Open House on March 19 from 6 to 730pm at the Beaver Bank Kinsac Community Centre.
An information session about the Environmental Assessment was held on November 13 at the Beaver Bank Kinsac Community Centre.
There was a lunch and learn session on January 15th, 2014 to follow-up for residents who missed the November meeting.
A tour of a turbine event was offered in September of 2015. Hundreds of residents took advantage of the opportunity.
Meetings and Events
An Environmental Assessment (EA) is a thorough investigation into ecological, archaeological and socio-economic impacts using methodologies defined under the Environment Act. In accordance with this act, wind energy projects 2MW or larger are required to undertake the EA process.
In contrast, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is a preliminary investigation into many of the same issues, based on existing environmental data, and a site survey. Potential impacts identified in the EIS must be studied further to determine the effect of the proposed project, and respective management/mitigation plans.
