$48-million in funding for energy-saving programs for PEI have been announced by the federal and provincial governments.
Cardigan MP and federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay and PEI Environment Minister Richard Brown made the announcement on Friday.
The goal is to save Islanders money and reduce energy waste as well as creating jobs and supporting healthy communities.
The federal funding is coming through the Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund.
Three programs focused on PEI climate change will be funded.
That includes building retrofits and heating equipment rebates and new programs to focus on energy-efficient products.
A greenhouse gas emission reduction will be put in place for the farming industry.
Also a move to establish forests on idle or less productive agricultural land.
The feds are putting over 23-million into the programs and the province will spend 24-million.
