Frequently Asked Questions

Does NB Power know if my power is out?

Not necessarily. If the cause of the outage is a generating station or transmission line or terminal, then NB Power will know immediately that there is an outage and begin steps to restore power.

If the cause is a downed distribution line, NB Power may not know about the outage until a customer calls to advise us of the situation. Please use Check Outages to determine if the outage for your location has already been reported. This information is updated every 10 minutes.
