My internship at NB Power has been a very rewarding experience. I have learned so much about the energy industry and how utilities work. This is my last week here and I am sad to leave. The people and the vibe here are fantastic.
I have been working in a team with 4 other SHADs doing research and generating new ideas for the company. We have also been going on tours of the facilities. One of the more notable tours was our trip to the Belledune generating station. This trip gave us an in depth look at the way a coal-firing generating plant works.
Last week we went and visited the energy marketing desk where power is bought and sold. This was a unique opportunity to see a different side of the company which has a business focus.
Overall this has been a great experience and I will value the connections and the knowledge I have gained during my internship.
