Recipients of 2020 Energy Efficiency Excellence Awards Announced


FREDERICTON (NB) – Today NB Power is recognizing seven New Brunswick individuals, businesses, organizations, educational institutions, and communities with Energy Efficiency Excellence Awards for their outstanding leadership in energy efficiency.

Since 2018, the Awards have celebrated the achievements of New Brunswickers who undertake efficiency projects or demonstrate a long-standing commitment to driving energy efficiency in the province. From leading-edge technologies and innovative ideas, to inspiring projects and long-term efficiency stewardship, these awards recognize the best of this province’s energy efficiency leaders in six different categories.

“We are excited to celebrate these New Brunswick efficiency champions today on Earth Day,” said Keith Cronkhite, NB Power President and CEO. “At NB Power, we envision a more sustainable energy future and are committed to helping New Brunswickers save energy at home and at work, through behaviour changes and efficiency upgrades. Today’s award recipients exemplify a commitment to energy savings which helps the environment and drives our economy.”

Winners were honoured earlier today during a virtual awards ceremony. Normally, they would have been celebrated in-person at the annual Energizing Efficiency Conference, which was to be held in May 2020, but the event was cancelled to help contain the spread of COVID-19.
