 ​About New Brunswick Power

 

New Brunswick Power Nucle​ar Corporation is a subsidiary of New Brunswick Power Corporation, the largest electric utility in Atlantic Canada. New Brunswick was Canada's third province to produce electricity using nuclear energy. It operates Atlantic Canada's only nuclear facility, Point Lepreau Generating Station. 

Point Lepreau G.S. has one nuclear reactor, a CANDU-6 unit, with net capacity of 635 MW. It was the first CANDU-6 to be licensed for operation and to begin commercial operation.

The unit supplies about 30% of the energy consumed in the province.

Low and stable fuel costs contribute to a reliable supply of economical electricity. NB Power is started refurbishing Point Lepreau in April 2008 and plans to restart in November 2009. This refurbishment is expected to extend the station's life to 2032.​
