Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station
Like all nuclear stations, the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station (PLNGS) depends on the support of our host community and the public to operate successfully.
The people who live and work near PLNGS are as important to its success as the people who work at the plant. That’s why helping the public understand nuclear power and keeping the communities around the Station informed of what’s happening at the Station is a key part of how NB Power does business. We use the responses from this public survey to help us decide how we can best communicate with our community about the Station.
It is our responsibility to be a good neighbour, strong environmental steward and a trusted community partner.
On a quarterly basis, NB Power publishes From the Point, a newsletter for the communities surrounding the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station. It features information about plant activities, employees, community partnerships, the regulatory process and other topics of interest.
Public Opinion Survey
Understanding public opinion about nuclear power, and more specifically, the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station (PLNGS), is important to NB Power.
We constantly seek feedback to ensure we are meeting people’s expectations, including the use of periodic telephone surveys.
In March 2017, telephone interviews involving over 600 New Brunswickers were conducted and the results were positive. We use the responses from this public survey to help us decide how we can best communicate with our community about the Station.
