2016-06-03


Fredericton, N.B. –  NB Power is joining utilities across Canada this June to celebrate our energy future with a series of events across the province as part of the Canadian Electricity Association’s National Electricity Month.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to talk face to face with our customers and learn more about how we can serve them better,” said Gaëtan Thomas, President and CEO. “We work every day to help our customers use less energy and save money on their monthly bills. This month, we’ll be sharing more with our customers about some of the new energy efficiency programs and services that are coming soon to help them stop paying for electricity they don’t need.”

During these events, NB Power will promote energy safety, discuss existing energy saving products and services and showcase new energy options being researched and tested in New Brunswick through pilot projects.

The Canadian Electricity Association declared June as National Electricity Month. Electricity is the backbone of the Canadian economy – it powers everything from household appliances to medical technology, smart phones, and computers to bank machines, businesses, and stores. By allowing consumers to see how the system works first-hand, CEA hopes to foster a national conversation on the value of electricity, stimulating and informing the discussion about the choices that need to be made today if Canada is to maintain a reliable, affordable, and sustainable electricity grid.
