One thing that Prince Edward Island has a lot of is wind. Sitting in the Gulf of St Lawrence, PEI is exposed to the heavy weather from the North Atlantic, and is investing heavily in wind energy as a result. Indeed there is a major wind research facility at the North Cape, a truly desolate and wind-swept promontory.

The North Cape, Prince Edward Island, is desolate and wind-swept. Exposed to the full force of storms in the Gulf of St Lawerence, Its red shale cliffs are slowly eroding, and nothing besides hardy grasses can survive. The light has been keeping sailors safe since 1866. It is now fenced with the communication tower for safety reasons.
