Tell the

Taking a Stand for Clean Energy in New Brunswick

We are excited to share that the Conservation Council of New Brunswick has launched a new campaign called “Tell the Facts.” — a campaign to do just that: Tell the facts about the federal clean electricity regulations and counter misleading ads launched in New Brunswick by the Alberta government.

Featured Campaign

Clean Fuel Regulations should be paid for by industry, not consumers

While other countries implement windfall taxes to ensure fair contributions from polluting companies, New Brunswick is creating loopholes that benefit these companies at the expense of its citizens.

As citizens and consumers, it’s crucial to raise our voices and hold our elected officials accountable. Write to your MLA and MP to demand fossil fuel companies pay their fair share. Let them know that New Brunswickers should not bear the burden of inaction by petroleum producers. Together, we can ensure a fair and sustainable future for all.

Electricity Vision

Our definition of cleaner electricity has two components. First, cleaner electricity relies primarily on non-polluting sources like wind, solar and existing hydro technologies and it is used efficiently. These renewable technologies have lower environmental impact than electricity generated from coal, oil and natural gas that generate greenhouse gases when burned causing the global heating that is supercharging our weather. Second, our sustainable electricity portfolio needs to be affordable and reliable.

The Electricity Vision is focused on the phase out of coal-fired electricity and ensures our regional electricity system is 90 per cent emissions free before 2030 as required by federal regulation and climate change policy.

Branch Out and Weave for Climate Change

Join our community-engaged artist-in-residence and mentorship program, From Harm to Harmony, for an exciting event, “Branch Out and Weave for Climate Change” on Jan. 26 and 27.

Karen LeBlanc will guide you through this hands-on exploration of branch weaving, where you’ll learn to transform nature’s elements into artistic expressions. Using Karen LeBlanc’s expertise, we’ll learn how beautiful branch weavings are made. The creations will demonstrate how we’re all interconnected to nature and highlight how a sustainable future depends on a delicate balance.

Energy Affordability Portal

There’s a decent chance you’re feeling the strain of keeping the heat on—more than one-third of New Brunswickers live in energy poverty, meaning they have to spend an unsustainable proportion of their monthly income on energy costs.

Check out our one-stop portal for energy affordability resources to help you learn more about energy poverty and what action we can take to address this pressing problem.
