Nova Scotia Power is committed to providing reliable electric service to Nova Scotians in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. Electric and magnetic fields (EMF) exist wherever electricity is present. Electric and magnetic fields are invisible lines of force that surround electrical equipment, appliances and wires that carry electricity.
Based on the predominant and leading research on EMF, Nova Scotia Power is confident that EMF emitted from its facilities and transmission and distribution infrastructure do not cause public health impacts. The health and safety of our employees and the public is our primary concern. We take prudent measures to protect public and employee health and safety in all areas and aspects of our operations.
Nova Scotia Power understands, however, that some people are concerned about exposure to EMF. If you have questions about EMF related to Nova Scotia Power lines, we are pleased to assist. You can call our Customer Care Centre at 1-800-428-6230 (toll free) to arrange a meeting with a Nova Scotia Power representative. Our representative can take EMF readings inside and outside your home, and provide you with a report on the findings.
