Port Hawkesbury Paper Wind (PHP Wind) is building a wind farm in Guysborough County. The project, known as Goose Harbour Lake Wind Farm, will harness renewable and efficient energy that will contribute to the long-term viability of the Port Hawkesbury Paper facility, one of the largest industrial employers in Nova Scotia.

About the project

PHP Wind is building a wind project, known as the Goose Harbour Lake Wind Farm Project, which will be located on lands in Guysborough County that are currently under license to Port Hawkesbury Paper for approved sustainable forest management.

This project represents another step towards securing the long-term viability of one of the largest industrial employers in Nova Scotia. The Goose Harbour Lake Wind Farm Project will contribute to the environmental, economic and social objectives of Port Hawkesbury Paper facility’s operations, as the project will reduce the carbon footprint of the provincial power supply and corresponding greenhouse gas emissions.


Environmental Considerations

In compliance with the Province of Nova Scotia’s rigorous Environmental Assessment and Approval Process, Goose Harbour Lake Wind Farm and its environmental experts, Strum Consulting, have completed and continue to undertake a number of detailed studies.
