What is Net Metering?

The NB Power Net Metering program provides customers with the option to connect their own environmentally sustainable generation unit to NB Power's distribution system. The program allows customers to generate their own electricity to offset their consumption, while still remaining connected to NB Power's distribution system – so they can meet their electricity demands when their generation unit cannot.

In order to qualify for the program, the generation must:

  • meet NB Power technical requirements
  • not exceed 100kW
  • come from renewable energy sources compatible with Environment Canada's Environmental Choice Program (EcoLogo TM) standards such as alternative use, biogas, biomass, solar, small hydro or wind
  • use approved equipment - certified by an organization recognized in the Province of New Brunswick
  • have an Electrical Wiring Permit from a licensed electrician, and inspection and approval by the New Brunswick Department of Public Safety, Technical Inspection Services prior to connection
