EnviroFest 2017 – Celebrating 20 years!

EnviroFest 2017 – Celebrating 20 years!

At Newfoundland Power we’re committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner while enhancing the quality of life in the communities where we live and work. We take pride in the difference our employees have made in communities across the island through our employee-driven Environmental Commitment Program.

EnviroFest is our annual celebration of the environment and this year we celebrated 20 years of hosting beautification projects across the province. Our employees dig in and play a hands-on role in the projects by volunteering, working right alongside our community partners.

We once again invited municipalities and community groups to submit proposals early in March and the great projects highlighted below were completed in June.

Carmanville: Approximately 20 volunteers, including MHA Derrick Bragg, were on hand to construct 10 planter boxes located at the town council office and another was constructed for the senior’s home in the community.

St. Mark’s School – King’s Cove: We had another great turnout from the community, employees and Minister Eddie Joyce and MHA Neil King dropped by. Employees and volunteers created an outdoor classroom and cleaned up around the school to make way for planter boxes that were filled with vegetable plants and flowers.

Tom McCormick Memorial Park – Bristol’s Hope: Approximately 40 employee volunteers and residents, along with Minister Steve Crocker, were on hand to lay over 4,000 square feet of sods in under one hour and planted trees/shrubs and flowers.

Steady Brook: We worked with the Corner Brook Stream Trail Association to plant trees and shrubs at the beginning of the trail in Steady Brook that will eventually connect with the trail in Corner Brook. Our partnership with the Corner Brook Stream Trail Association has spanned almost 15 years and it was great to work them again.

Keep Your Children SAFE this Summer

Keep Your Children SAFE this Summer

Children don’t always know, or remember, what can harm them, so it’s important to teach your children that electrical equipment is extremely dangerous.

  • Never tamper with electrical equipment and teach your children the meaning of danger signs.
  • Never climb electrical infrastructure or enter substation yards.
  • Do not swim in reservoirs around hydroelectric generating plants. The operation of the plant may cause water conditions in the reservoir to change quickly, creating strong underwater currents.
  • Never build a tree house near power lines, and keep children from climbing trees growing near power lines.
  • Only fly kites and model planes in open fields away from power lines. If something becomes entangled in a power line, never try to retrieve it. Call us for assistance.

We wish you a safe and happy summer.

THINK SAFE. LIVE SAFE.

Season’s Greetings from our Family to Yours!

The holidays are a time for us to give back to those who are close to us as well as those in need.

Our employees have been busy this season in support of many different community initiatives: We collected over 16,000 pounds of food for the Community Food Sharing Association; served breakfast to the hardworking staff at St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital; stocked gifts bags for the Gathering Place; decorated cancer centres in St. John’s and Gander for the holiday season; helped children keep warm for another year through our commitment to the Coats for Kids program; and, donated many units of blood to help save lives as part of our ongoing partnership with Canadian Blood Services.

Through the generosity of our customers and employees, we have been able to help make a difference in the fight against cancer. Through our corporate charity, The Power of Life Project, we have donated much-needed equipment in support of cancer treatment and comfort, filled a toy box full of joy for children, and shared in the celebration of hope through the Let Hope Ring program.

As we embark upon another holiday, please put safety first – whether you’re cutting a Christmas tree, stringing up lights or gathering around a fire, remember a safe holiday season is a happy one.

From all of us at Newfoundland Power, have a safe and happy holiday!
