P.E.I. ranks 7th in Canada when it comes to energy efficiency, study saysCBC News
P.E.I. is doing well in some areas and poor in others when it comes to energy efficiency, according to a study by Efficiency Canada released Tuesday morning.
P.E.I. ranked seventh in the Provincial Energy Efficiency Scorecard put out by the organization.
The study looked at what each province has been doing on everything from energy-efficiency programs and building codes to transportation.
“Energy efficiency deserves a lot more attention than it typically gets,” said Brendan Haley, the study’s lead author and public director at Efficiency Canada.
Haley said discussions around energy usually focus on oil, gas and wind turbines.
“The energy we save is a huge abundant opportunity,” Haley said.
He said P.E.I. could create more jobs in the sector by hiring more energy advisers.
