Message to Customers 

27 November 2014 – 11:45 am

The nor'easter has hit southern NB hard with heavy wet snow, ice pellets and high winds. The storm has broken many trees and knocked many down in southern NB and continues to work its way up the coast.

There are currently customers without power primarily in Fredericton, Sussex, Shediac, Moncton and Bouctouche. 

Approximately 82 NB Power and contract crews (approx. 170 people), including line and tree trimming crews were on the road this morning at first light.  Additional resources are helping with damage assessment.

Crews from Edmunston Energy and Saint John Energy are aiding the restoration effort, and approximately 15 crews from NS Power are on the road and will arrive this afternoon. Northern crews are also being relocated to the southern part of the province to help.

We relocated crews yesterday to make sure they were in place prior to the storm hitting and to speed the restoration process. We are continuing to relocate crews as the conditions warrant.

Because of the snowy and icy roads, driving conditions and access to damaged areas is proving difficult. It will take our crews most of the day to get a good idea of the damage. We will be able to provide more accurate estimated restoration times when the assessments are completed.

For now, our restoration crews are focussed on restoring high-risk and emergency calls, and outages that can get the most customers back online at one time.

People are reminded to stay safe, and not to approach downed lines. If you are operating a generator, please make sure it is ventilated properly and was installed by a licensed electrician.  Check our website for safety tips on operating generators at home.


We will continue to provide updates throughout the day
