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)

 
   

At the Customer's request, NB Power will supply, own and maintain the substation facilities from the high voltage switches to the low voltage terminals of the step-down transformers, provided such transformation satisfies NB Power standards. The charge for such Rental Facilities is 1 2/3% per month of the installed costs. The Customer will supply the low voltage switch gear, concrete substation foundation pads and necessary protective fencing.

For customers with a primary service voltage of 12.47 kV, at the customer's request, NB Power will supply, own and maintain the distribution facilities at a primary service voltage of 12.47 kV up to the secondary voltage terminals on the step down transformer. The charge for such Rental Facilities is 1 2/3% per month of the installed costs.

Rental
Charges

   

At the discretion of NB Power, electricity may be supplied at a primary service voltage between 4 kV and 25 kV. In such cases, the monthly demand and energy consumption will be increased by 1 1/2% to compensate for transformation losses.

Losses
Charge

   

When a Customer is provided service at voltages less than 69 kV, the Customer will also be charged an "equivalent kVA rental" charge. The equivalent kVA charge is the Customer's kVA demand multiplied by $1.50 per kVA per month.

Transformation
Charge

   

A Customer supplied at the large industrial rate is required, and is deemed, to have entered a firm contract providing for the payment of the rate, for an initial term of five (5) years, in the case of a Customer considered by NB Power to be a new Customer, and for an initial term of one year for a Customer considered by NB Power to be an existing Customer. The contract will continue thereafter on a firm basis subject to termination by either the Customer or NB Power at the end of the initial term, or any date thereafter by either party giving at least twelve months' notice in writing.

When a Customer's operations are jeopardized because of a failure of its electricity generating equipment, the Customer can apply to suspend any portion of its curtailable power contract and/or firm up all or part of interruptible purchases for a period of at least six months and not more than one year.

Contracts

   

The metering point shall be at or near the transmission line terminals (69 kV or above).
