As an energy provider, we continuously work to reduce our environmental footprint and help our customers do the same through energy conservation.
In 2017, we achieved all of our environmental objectives and targets with 100% environmental regulation compliance. We also updated our Environmental Management System to the ISO 14001:2015 Standard; 2018 marks the 20th year that our operations have been certified as meeting this internationally recognized standard of environmental performance. Also in 2017 we eliminated all PCBs from our system.
We have over 9,300 smart meters in-market. Unlike traditional meters, smart meters are built for two-way communications between the meter and central power system, which allows us to better monitor energy consumption on a day-to-day basis.
Our award-winning Energy Star Most Efficient rated mini-split ductless heat pump rental program, rolled out in 2016, was the first of its kind in Canada and now provides over 3,200 customers with safe, efficient and affordable home heating.

Energy conservation is a key priority for us – we not only encourage our customers to reduce and conserve energy, but we continuously look for ways we can do so within our operations.
We actively find ways to reduce overall costs and pass the savings on to our customers. One of these many initiatives was installing LED street lights, which not only last longer and require less maintenance, but are more energy efficient.
As a forward-looking company, we explore feasible, green sources of energy to feed our power grid.
We are founding member of Sustainable Saint John, a grassroots program dedicated to advocacy, education and engagement on environment-related initiatives through a network of like-minded, local organizations.
