Prince Edward Island Energy Commission has been established to examine the structural issues that impact the cost of electricity in the province. This examination is being carried out with the objective of reducing and/or stabilizing electricity costs over the long-term.
An important component of the commission’s work is consulting with Islanders to gather information and ideas that can be used to help develop recommendations for government. Our hope is to start a conversation about the benefits and the outcomes of the different ways in which we purchase, produce and use our electric energy. The commission is scheduled to submit its report to government in the fall of 2012.
