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.

Unmetered Rate Application Guidelines

Services for which electricity consumption is uniform and easily estimated.

Services where metering is not considered practical by NB Power.

Specific Applications of the unmetered rate include:

  • traffic control lights
  • self-contained sign lighting
  • architectural flood lighting
  • decorative lighting
  • carrier repeaters
  • radio transmitters
  • telephone booths
  • range lights
  • airport runway lights
  • highway traffic counters
  • CATV power supply units

Electricity consumption is estimated by multiplying the connected load in watts times the hours of usage. For example, a photoelectrically controlled 100 Watt sign light operates approximately 12 hours per day, has an estimated annual consumption calculated as follows:

100 watts x 12 hours x 365 days = 438,000 watt-hours or 438 kWh per year.

If conditions are such as to cause reasonable doubt concerning the connected load, recording equipment will be installed to determine the kW connected load.
