PEI doesn't have any oil, or commercial natural gas (there was a natural gas fraud--Goggle Meteor Creek) We don't have any rivers to speak of, or any lakes. It is a 'million acre farm', with sand dunes and beaches, with absolutely clean water, absolutely clean soil and extremely clean ocean beaches. Our industries are farming, tourism, aerospace (really!) and fishing. Oh, and training police and chefs, high quality professional level stainless steel cookware, chemical testing kits sold worldwide and similar niche things. All very clean and non-polluting. We also have the highest integration rate of wind power in North America--well over 30% of electricity is from turbines, and the local city of Summerside is 46% and climbing. Old fashioned values and viewscapes but ultramodern otherwise. No oil or gas, and no hydro and no nuclear, and no coal, so wind power and solar PV/solar air and water heating is all a natural fit here.
