COVID-19 Information: New Brunswickers can continue to benefit from our residential and business energy efficiency programs. The Community Outreach Program remains on hold to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Our employees and contractors follow pandemic operational plans aligned with Public Health to keep everyone safe.

Prior to an employee or contractor going inside your home or business, health screening will take place. Results of screening will determine if the appointment will proceed and the type of protective equipment to be used. We appreciate our customers’ patience and flexibility as we navigate the impacts of COVID-19 together.

Synergy Challenge 2018



NB Power’s Power Reactor Operating Licence granted by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission for the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station (PLNGS) requires a full-scale emergency exercise to be held every three years.

NB Power’s partner for emergency response to an emergency with off-site implications is the New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization (NB EMO).

Together, NB Power and NB EMO held a multi-tier and jurisdiction emergency exercise on October 3 and 4, 2018 called Synergy Challenge 2018.

This exercise tested emergency preparedness, response and recovery capabilities and decision making by NB Power and NB EMO. This exercise demonstrated the collaborative effectiveness, response and recovery capabilities of NB Power, NBEMO, and emergency response partners.

The top level objectives for Synergy Challenge 2018 included:

  • Validating the preparedness of NB Power, PLNGS, government and non-government organizations and agencies to respond to a nuclear emergency
  • Testing the interoperability of participating organizations and coordination of response and recovery efforts
  • Validating current on-site and off-site Nuclear Emergency Plans
  • Producing a joint evaluation report on the interoperability, coordination, and integration of participating organizations during a simulated nuclear emergency at PLNGS.

Synergy Challenge 2018  demonstrated the overall preparedness for a nuclear emergency. Ensuring NB Power and the Government of New Brunswick, through NB EMO and other departments, are aligned and well-rehearsed in emergency response activities.
