Our Energy

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 diverse supply mix includes NB Power’s 12 hydro, coal, oil and diesel-powered generating stations, our Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station and Shediac solar farm, as well as power purchased from various privately owned renewable and natural gas‐powered facilities.
