Town of Shediac proud to receive the Jean-Jacques Roy Award for Excellence in Municipal Innovation from the association representing New Brunswick’s francophone municipalities

SHEDIAC, N.B. – The Town of Shediac is proud to receive the 2022 the Jean-Jacques Roy Award for Excellence in Municipal Innovation from the Association francophone des municipalités du Nouveau-Brunswick (AFMNB). The presentation was made last weekend at the Association’s annual general meeting held in Edmundston.

Shediac received the award for its Smart Energy Community Project in partnership with NB Power, Siemens Canada and National Research Council Canada, an initiative to increase the level of solar power in the municipality. The project will see more than 400 Shediac homeowners install and test energy technology that includes solar and battery energy storage systems, thermal storage heat pumps and smart thermostats.

As well, NB Power will be adding solar panels, battery energy storage and energy efficiency upgrades to two major Shediac buildings – the Shediac Multipurpose Centre and the Government of Canada Pension Centre. These buildings will be connected to a 1.63 MW solar farm within town limits. The goal is to reduce energy use and increase reliance on renewable energy. Excess electricity from the solar farm will flow into the community via the distribution system. These buildings will be New Brunswick’s first net-zero commercial buildings.

“On behalf of the Town of Shediac, I want to thank the AFMNB for this recognition,” said Roger Caissie, Mayor of Shediac. “I also want to thank our exceptional partners in this Smart Energy Community Project, including NB Power, Siemens Canada and National Research Council Canada, not to mention our most important partners – the people of Shediac.”

“Without the participation of hundreds of local residents, this project would not be possible,” Mr. Caissie said. “In fact, Siemens Canada CEO Faisal Kazi has said that the scope of this research project in Shediac is not only a first for Canada, but also the world. As the Lobster Capital of the World, we aim for nothing less!”

Through the project, consumers will be able to lower their energy costs by incorporating more green energy into their electrical usage. “These types of innovations have taken on more urgency as storms such as Dorian and – more recently – Fiona have plunged our area into darkness. With climate change affecting seaside communities more and more, we need to do what we can in order to diversify the ways in which we generate electricity.”

Mr. Caissie also recognized former mayor Jacques LeBlanc and former NB Power CEO Gaëtan Thomas as playing essential roles in implementing this project at its beginning. “Without their vision and collaboration, this project would not have happened.”

The Shediac Smart Energy Community Project is part of Smart Grid Atlantic, a four-year, federally funded initiative supporting energy technology projects in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

The Jean-Jacques Roy Award for Excellence in Municipal Innovation was launched in 2007 and is awarded annually to an AFMNB member municipality that has demonstrated innovation in infrastructure, social development, language, culture, arts and heritage, ecology/environment, or francophone promotion and pride. Municipalities must also demonstrate how they promote, where relevant, the equality of the linguistic communities (including the Mi'kmaq) within their territory in signage, municipal operations and community life.
