Prince Edward Island is known for its red sandy beaches and notorious potatoes, but did you know it is a wind powerhouse? That’s right, the province has some of the greatest wind potential in North America! It also has fairly high solar potential, ranking seventh out of the 13 provinces and territories. In 2019, 99% of the electricity generated within PEI came from wind. The province, however, imports around 60% of its electricity needs from New Brunswick, which comes from a mix of nuclear, fossil fuels, and hydroelectricity. The majority of the electricity in PEI is managed by Maritime Electric, a private utility.
