Be a part of New Brunswick’s energy future, today. It all starts with you!

The North Branch Smart Energy Neighborhood is a groundbreaking initiative in Moncton, New Brunswick.

Solaire Homes, NB Power and Siemens are working together to create a neighbourhood of highly energy efficient homes with leading-edge renewable and smart energy technologies. This brand new neighbourhood is part of a four-year federally funded research project that will impact how New Brunswickers use and produce energy for generations to come. And you get the benefits and all the advantages now!

Looking to build a new home?

Why not build a highly energy efficient smart home?
As an early adopter of smart energy technologies, you know the value of investing in sustainable energy. By purchasing a home in North Branch, not only will you live in a beautiful neighborhood, save energy and reduce your carbon footprint, but you’ll also benefit from:
A significant rebate on a roof-top solar generation system.
A smart energy storage battery for your home at no cost to you.
A home energy management system designed specifically for your home and this project, at no cost to you.
A zero-energy home is one that produces as much energy as it will use on an annual basis, while still being connected to the security of the local power grid.


Here’s how you can live in this new smart energy neighbourhood and participate in a groundbreaking project that will contribute to a future of green, sustainable energy in New Brunswick!
This is an opportunity for NB Power and the province to learn more about how we consume energy in our everyday lives, how to make New Brunswick’s power grid more efficient, and how new technologies can help us save money and lower greenhouse gas emissions in the province. Now, your part is simple!
  • Decide to buy or build a new home in the North Branch neighbourhood.
  • Agree to participate in the research initiative in exchange for new technology at a highly reduced rate.
  • Equip your home with the research technology package listed above.
  • Allow NB Power and its partners to remotely monitor your home’s energy usage.
  • Participate in research on a leading-edge ‘energy exchange’ model for your neighbourhood, where neighbours can buy and sell their renewable energy.
  • Answer up to 4 surveys a year, for the three-year duration of the study.
