It is very important for us as New Brunswickers to do our part to help contain the spread of COVID-19.

As the COVID-19 situation in New Brunswick evolves, we’ll continue to adjust and expand our services accordingly. Our Commercial and Industrial energy efficiency programs, as well as our New Home Energy Savings Program are open for new registrations. The remainder of our programs remain suspended until further notice due to the in-home nature of this work.

 

Thermal

Oil, gas, and coal are also used to make electricity in New Brunswick. Thermal generating stations, such as Belledune and Coleson Cove use one or more of these fuel sources. Our thermal stations have some of the most advanced environmental protection equipment in North America. View our system map for an overview of the stations and the environmental protections in place.

All thermal stations work basically the same way: the fuel source is burned to produce heat, which is then used to turn water into steam. The steam is directed to a turbine with blades. When the blades turn, the generator is then able to make electricity.

Check out this video we made with our education partner, The Gaia Project, to see more on how our Belledune thermal station works.
