Incentive Program Boosts Solar Energy Technologies in Prince Edward Island

Energy conscious residents of Charlottetown and other great communities on Prince Edward Island now have access to Canada's best clean energy incentive program thanks to a partnership between the provincial government and the federal government's Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund.

According to the provincial government's efficiencyPEI's Solar Electric Rebate Program, incentives are available for PEI homeowners, farms and businesses to install solar photvoltaic (PV) panels.

Solar PV technology can lower energy bills for Islanders, working hand-in-hand with other efficiency upgrades. The incentives will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions on the Island by over 500 tonnes annually and create around 20 spin-off jobs in our renewable energy sector. 

efficiencyPEI's solar incentives make solar power more affordable than ever. The program provides the following incentives:

  • $1,000/kilowatt installed for homes
  • $350/kilowatt installed for businesses and farms 
  • Up to 40% of installed costs - up to $10,000

Financing for the program is available through Finance PEI.
