It is very important for us as New Brunswickers to do our part to help contain the spread of COVID-19.

As the COVID-19 situation in New Brunswick evolves, we’ll continue to adjust and expand our services accordingly. Our Commercial and Industrial energy efficiency programs, as well as our New Home Energy Savings Program are open for new registrations. The remainder of our programs remain suspended until further notice due to the in-home nature of this work.

 

Incentives

 

NB Power’s New Home Energy Savings Program is a prescriptive and performance-based program encouraging builders and homebuyers to reduce their energy consumption by going beyond the minimums prescribed in the National Building Code.

NB Power will offer financial incentives to participants who build homes that achieve the minimum prescriptive building envelope requirements (with all heating systems being ENERGY STAR certified, if applicable) and the following performance targets:

To reach ... build a house ... to receive ...
Level 1 that meets the minimum building envelope requirements (with all heating systems being ENERGY STAR certified, if applicable) and that performs at least 55% better than the reference house but does not achieve a 0 GJ/year rating (baseloads included) $6,000
Level 2 that meets the minimum building envelope requirements (with all heating systems being ENERGY STAR certified, if applicable) and is Zero Energy Rated, 0 GJ/year (baseloads included) $10,000

Please see Appendix A in the Program Guidelines for the minimum building envelope requirements and Appendix B and C for the product eligibility criteria.

*The Reference House is based on what the energy consumption would be if the house had been built to the current National Building Code. The performance targets exclude baseloads (lighting, appliances, and plug-in devices) and energy generated from renewables.
