To ensure we have a reliable power supply for our customers, NB Power has grown our generation mix from a small, 5 megawatt (MW) hydroelectric generating station in Musquash to one of the most diverse systems in North America. Our mix currently consists of 14 nuclear, hydro, coal, oil and diesel powered stations, as well as power purchase agreements from various privately owned renewable and natural gas‐powered facilities.
