We’re truly New Brunswick’s Power company. We work hard every single day to provide consistent, safe, reliable and sustainable energy at the lowest possible cost. Why? Because we’re New Brunswickers too.
The electricity we use to power our homes, businesses and facilities is generated at 13 stations throughout the province. It reaches us through power lines, substations and terminals. That’s more than 400,000 direct and indirect customers. We also export (sell) electricity to New England, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island through our subsidiary, New Brunswick Energy Marketing. Selling extra electricity helps keep the costs down. And that’s good for all New Brunswickers.
We take great pride in delivering safe, reliable and reasonably priced energy to you because we want you to have the best experience possible with us. So any questions or concerns you might have are handled by our friendly and knowledgeable customer service team. Live or online, we’ll do our best to help you in any way we can.
We’re proud to say NB Power operates and maintains one of North America's most diverse generating systems consisting of 13 hydro, coal, oil and diesel-powered generating stations that can pump out upwards of 3,790 MW or power. Generation from these stations supply approximately 75% of the power needed by New Brunswickers everyday. These powerful stations also have the capacity to export energy to our neighbours in New England, Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia.
