September 13, 2023 – Ottawa is providing up to $25 million for the Weavers Mountain Wind Energy Project in Nova Scotia which, when completed, will produce nearly 95 MW for the province’s grid.

The Weavers project is an undertaking by WEB Weavers Mountain Wind LP, a majority Indigenous-owned partnership between Glooscap Energy LP and SWEB Development LP. (Glooscap Energy LP is a fully Indigenous community-owned organization whose purpose is to explore and implement renewable energy projects.)

Federal funding for the project is provided by Canada’s $1.56-billion Smart Renewables and Electrification Pathways (SREP) Program, which aims to help replace fossil fuel-generated electricity with renewable energy, battery storage, and grid modernization solutions.
