Energy legislation consultation

The Government of Prince Edward Island is reviewing energy legislation and is inviting Islanders, businesses, communities and energy partners to provide their feedback.

Some of the major considerations include community energy generation, getting PEI to net-zero, and making PEI's energy grid sustainable for the next 25 years.

About PEI's energy legislation

The Electric Power Act regulates public utilities supplying electric power, along with energy efficiency measures. The goal of the Act is to ensure that rates are reasonable, publicly justifiable, and non-discriminatory.  

The Renewable Energy Act regulates the use of renewable energy sources to reduce dependence on imported energy and to promote the development of PEI solutions to meet the province's energy requirements.
