Unlike oil and gas, electricity is not a primary source of energy. It needs to be manufactured from other energy sources.
 
In Prince Edward Island, oil (or diesel, a product of oil) is the main source (0%), while wind accounts for another 99.12%.  Biomass and other alternatives make up 0.88% of the total. Prince Edward Island has no coal fired or nuclear power plants.
 
Prince Edward Island imports much of its electricity from New Brunswick over undersea cables.  For Island production statistics, click here.
