The Government of New Brunswick is developing an Output-Based Pricing System for New Brunswick’s large industrial emitters, including electricity generators.
New Brunswick’s system will meet the federal government’s criteria while at the same time it will recognize New Brunswick’s unique economic circumstances; allow for greater market acceptance; and ensure New Brunswick can still experience the opportunity for economic growth similar to other areas of the country which have been permitted to design their own systems.
