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.

Large Industrial Rate Schedule (con't)

 
   

To qualify, the Customer must agree to reduce the load for which the start-up rate applies within ten (10) minutes of a request from NB Power. The reduction will be to a level stipulated by NB Power. Load reductions will normally be requested when the in-province load and firm commitments outside the Province are expected to exceed NB Power's supply capability.

NB Power estimates the applicable start-up rate and makes retroactive adjustments based on the Customer's actual cost per kWh, which is the aggregate of demand and energy charges, established during the six month period following the start-up period.

The start-up rate will be calculated so that the resulting cost to the Customer is the higher of:

  • 8.13¢ per kWh, or
  • Customer's lowest monthly aggregate cost per kWh in the six months following the start-up period.

NB Power will supply interruptible energy in excess of the demand reserved for the Customer up to the amount of the Customer's unused generation capability, if such energy is available at the Delivery Point, and can be provided with available resources over and above the requirement of other firm commitments. The rate will be based on NB Power's incremental cost of providing such energy.
