Selling excess electricity
If you are planning to install your own generator that will be connected to our grid, you may be eligible to sell your excess electricity back to Manitoba Hydro. The agreement required and price we will pay for your excess electricity will depend on the size and type of generator.
Non-utility generation less than 100 kW
If your generator is less than 100 kW in size, we may purchase your excess electricity using net billing at the excess energy price.

Instructional tips are included to help you complete this agreement. To view these tips, the form must be saved onto your computer and opened in a current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Before you install your generator, make sure that you are following Manitoba Hydro’s steps for interconnection.
Non-utility generation 100 kW or greater
For generation systems 100 kW in size or greater, a power purchase agreement may be required before you start your project.
The excess energy price for projects 100 kW in size or greater is determined on a case-by-case basis and is dependent on the specific characteristics of your project. Email us to discuss your proposed generation project.
