This survey, which has been commissioned by NB Power, Saint John Energy, Perth Andover Light Commission and Edmundston Energy, will provide insights about the province’s household energy consumption patterns.
“Customer input is essential in order to help plan for the future of energy delivery in New Brunswick,” said NB Power president and CEO, Gaëtan Thomas. “The responses provided in the energy planning survey will help us develop programs for all New Brunswickers and forecast our province’s future energy needs.”
Approximately 30,000 customers will receive the survey either by mail or online. Customers will be asked to provide information including:
• home heating types
• square footage and age of homes
• levels of insulation
• appliances and lighting use in homes
• electric vehicle use
• energy management and efficiency practices
The survey is being conducted on behalf of NB Power and the municipal utilities by Corporate Research Associates.
