Important Update: Town of Lunenburg Electric Utility Service Arrangement with Nova Scotia Power
The Town of Lunenburg is pleased to announce that we have entered into a service agreement with Nova Scotia Power for the operations and maintenance of the Town’s Electric Utility infrastructure. The arrangement is scheduled to begin on June 1, 2018 for a renewable five-year term and will provide a wide range of technical expertise to ensure a reliable and sustainable electricity supply. Lunenburg’s Electric Utility customers will benefit from a collaboration with a proven electric utility service provider, one with whom we have worked in past years on such system needs as poles, wires and substation. The Town will continue to own its Electric Utility and infrastructure, and customers will have continuity in service. All on site work will be carried out by Nova Scotia Power personnel with no change in the cost of electricity as a result of this arrangement.
