On June 22, Sierra Club Atlantic hosted a webinar with special guest Greg Gaudet, the Director of Municipal Service for Summerside Electric—PEI’s only municipally owned and operated power utility.
In 2009, Summerside Electric built its first wind farm, and attained the highest percentage of wind integration of any utility in North America. What’s next for Summerside? A smart grid, more electric charging stations, a solar garden, and converting gas vehicles to electric!
What if the wind doesn't blow?
Prof. Mark Jacobson explained how we already have the technology we need to transition to clean renewable energy. So why are governments and utilities putting it off, setting modest goals for 2030, and talking about net-zero by 2050? It’s certainly not based on science, or even economics, as you’ll discover in our conversation with Prof. Jacobson.
