Higgins Mountain Wind

Project Overview

The Higgins Mountain Wind Farm Project is being developed in partnership with Sipekne’katik First Nation, Elemental Energy, and Stevens Wind. The project is strategically sited at one of the province’s windiest sites, directly adjacent to available interconnection capacity.
