COVID-19 Information: New Brunswickers can continue to benefit from our residential and business energy efficiency programs. The Community Outreach Program remains on hold to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Our employees and contractors follow pandemic operational plans aligned with Public Health to keep everyone safe.

Prior to an employee or contractor going inside your home or business, health screening will take place. Results of screening will determine if the appointment will proceed and the type of protective equipment to be used. We appreciate our customers’ patience and flexibility as we navigate the impacts of COVID-19 together.

Payments and Refunds cont'd

If NB Power utilizes the extension for its own operating purposes such as a tieline during this five (5) year period, the total amount of the refundable contribution, less any previous refunds, will be returned.

Refunds are calculated as shown in Section O - Fees and Charges, Extension of Overhead Facilities Refunds. Any refunds owing to the Customer will first be applied to any outstanding balances owed to NB Power by the Customer. Any remaining balance will be paid to the Customer.

Distribution Line Extensions:

Extension of a distribution line (750 Volts or less) from a section of line upon which a contribution has been paid will entitle the original contributing Customer to one (1) refund for each permanent Customer added.

Extension of a distribution line (over 750 Volts) from a section of line upon which a contribution has been paid will entitle the original contributing Customer to one (1) refund per primary extension.

Refund of
Customer
Contribution
(cont'd)

The contributing Customer will normally receive refunds based on the standard facility distance allowance times the average per meter Construction Charge of the extension. However, if the Customer contributed to a three-phase extension and the service added is single-phase, the refund will be adjusted by one-half.

If a Customer upgraded from single to three-phase service and contributed based on the addition of two-phases, and a single-phase Customer requests service from that section of facilities, then the Customer who contributed to the facility is not entitled to a refund.
