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.

NB Power specifies the location of the Applicant's Delivery Point. If an Applicant requests NB Power to locate the Delivery Point at a location other than the one specified, and this results in additional expense for NB Power, the Applicant is charged for such non-standard facilities.
