What You Can Do

The City of Fredericton uses an energy pyramid model that focuses on energy conservation first, energy efficiency next and renewables last. As an energy consumer you can follow these same principles to minimize energy use and cost. Visit the NB Power website for tips on conservation, efficiency and residential incentive programs for saving energy in your home. The federal government also offers a Greener Homes Grant.
