The transportation sector is the biggest contributor to PEI’s carbon emissions at around 40% – and about 36% of total energy consumption on the Island.
Energy incentives are needed to encourage consumers to move to transportation options that produce less carbon emissions. For example, the Ontario government has an Electric Vehicle Incentive Program.
