Buying natural gas
In Manitoba, you can choose to buy your Primary Natural Gas from us or from an independent natural gas marketer. You have various rate options to best meet your own particular needs. Before you decide, you should understand all your options, so that you can make the best choice for your situation.
If you already purchase your Primary Gas from a natural gas marketer, you will find their contact information on your Manitoba Hydro bill.
Choosing your natural gas supplier
Customers can choose whether to buy Primary Gas from:
- Manitoba Hydro;
- a natural gas marketer.
Whichever supplier you choose, Manitoba Hydro will continue to deliver the natural gas to your home or business and bill you for it.
