An agreement between the four Atlantic provinces to improve the electrical grid could bring opportunities to further develop renewable energy, says P.E.I. Premier Wade MacLauchlan.

It was trouble at the distribution point in Memramcook that led to an Island-wide blackout in November.

Improvements to the grid will also make it easier to expand the use of renewable energy, he said. Renewables such as wind and solar can be a problem for the grid because you can’t predict when they will be producing power.

MacLauchlan said Trudeau is interested in the idea both for its ability to improve the Atlantic economy and for the opportunity to expand renewable energy use.

Discussions have not yet reached the point of setting budgets.
