Unlike oil and gas, electricity is not a primary source of energy. It needs to be manufactured from other energy sources.
 
In 2010, uranium (0%), coal (21.16%) and oil (18.74%) were the main sources for electricity in New Brunswick. Hydro (30.57%), natural gas (16.84%), biomass and other alternatives (9.12%) made up the balance.  Wind power came online after 2010.
 
New Brunswick produces virtually all of its own electricity needs. See New Brunswick's production statistics here.
