Are there any costs other than the monthly rental service fee?

Should there be any upgrades, repairs or replacement of existing customer equipment necessary for NB Power to install the GenerLink™ device and set-up service, such as a meter base or mast, these would be the responsibility of the customer and are not included in the SureConnect Service package.

Is there a minimum rental term?

Yes, there is a minimum rental term of 12 consecutive months.

What happens if I want SureConnect removed from my home?

You must contact NB Power to remove, replace or repair the SureConnect Service including the  GenerLink™ device. The GenerLink™ device and GenerLok™ cord set remain the property of NB Power.

What about my meter?

SureConnect Service including the GenerLink™ installation will extend out the utility meter by another 15 centimetres.
