The Prince Edward Island Energy Corporation (PEIEC) is a Crown Corporation of the Province of Prince Edward Island (Province of PEI), created by an order of the Lieutenant Governor in Council, with a mandate to develop and promote energy systems on an economic and efficient basis, and to coordinate all government programs in the establishment and application of energy systems in the Province. The PEIEC owns and operates two utility grade wind facilities within the Province of PEI with a combined generating capacity of 40.56 Megawatts (MW). With a planned commissioning date of on or before December 31, 2012, the PEIEC is seeking proposals for the supply of utility grade turbines for another 30 MW wind facility.
