The Ministry of Infrastructure and Communities, and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities' (FCM) President, announced an investment of CAD 11.5 million to build a solar energy farm and storage facility in Summerside through the Green Municipal Fund (GMF). The GMF is funded by the Government of Canada and delivered to municipalities by FCM.


The project will integrate a solar energy and storage system to its existing smart grid system, and will have the potential to generate 32,000 MegaWatt-hours per year of solar energy. The project will allow the City to meet 62 percent of its electricity needs through renewable energy and reduce GHG emissions by 8,128 tonnes per year.
