Province looking for input and bold ideas from Islanders to help reach Net Zero energy use

The province is asking Islanders to submit their bold ideas about ways to reach the goal of Net Zero energy consumption by 2030.

Net Zero energy consumption means that the total amount of energy used is roughly equal to the amount of renewable energy created. In order to reach Net Zero, several factors will need to be considered including the following: conservation, efficiency, land use, carbon removal and renewable energy sources.

“We want to build on PEI’s strengths, while at the same time recognizing, understanding and figuring out where and how we can improve. Our intent is to hear potential solutions from Islanders that will lead to the development of a plan for a sustainable future – PEI’s Path Towards Net Zero.”

- Premier Dennis King

Reaching Net Zero will take cooperation from Islanders – community groups, businesses, and all levels of government.
