Minister of Environment, Energy and Forestry Jamie Ballem provided an
update today . . .
The Prince Edward Island Energy Framework and Renewable Energy Strategy
includes an action plan to enhance the role of renewable energy, and the
framework around which a comprehensive provincial energy strategy will be
shaped. Minister Ballem said a Renewable Energy Act will be introduced
today, putting into effect several items in the action plan. The act and
regulations which will follow will require utilities to acquire at least 15
per cent of their electrical energy from renewables by 2010; allow for net
metering for small renewable energy systems and a guaranteed feed-in tariff
for community, wind cooperative and large systems; and restrict large-scale
wind developments to designated development areas. . .
