New Brunswick Transmission System Agreement (8-NB-d)

Information current as of 2018
In New Brunswick, a person (developer) may need to enter into a Transmission System Agreement with the New Brunswick Power Corporation (Corporation) for the development of the New Brunswick Integrated Electricity System (IES). The IES means the transmission system and the structures, equipment or other things that connect those transmission systems to the generation and distribution systems in New Brunswick. New Brunswick – Electricity Act, S.N.B. 2013, c. E-4.6, s. 1. A transmission system means the transfer of electricity at voltages of 69 kilovolts or more over an interconnected group of lines and includes all structures and equipment used to transmit electricity. S.N.B. 2003, c. E-4.6, s. 1. The New Brunswick Electricity Act, S.N.B. 2013, c. E-4.6 established the Corporation, which is the entity responsible for reliable operations of the IES. New Brunswick – Transmission and System Operator Division Webpage.

Pursuant to the S.N.B. 2013, c. E-4.6, s. 82, no person other than the Corporation may construct any new facilities used to provide transmission services in New Brunswick. However, the Corporation may, with the approval of the Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick, enter into a Transmission System Agreement with a developer for the purpose of developing the New Brunswick transmission system. S.N.B. 2003, c. E-4.6, s. 84.

In addition, the New Brunswick Electricity Act, S.N.B. 2013, c. E-4.6 amalgamated the Corporation with the New Brunswick – Transmission and System Operator Division (TSO Division) S.N.B. 2013, c. E-4.6, s. 1, 3. The TSO Division owns and operates the transmission system used to carry electricity from generating stations and other supply sources. New Brunswick – Transmission and System Operator Division Webpage. The TSO Division has the authority to enter into interconnection agreements (Connection Approvals) with owners or operators of transmission systems in other jurisdictions. New Brunswick – Transmission and System Operator Division Webpage.

If a Transmission System Agreement is entered into with the Corporation, a developer may need a Connection Approval through the TSO Division to connect new or materially modified transmission facilities or connections to the IES. For more information on the Connection Approval process, see:
