How our system works

BANG: why we use implosion sleeves

Implosion sleeves are a specialized piece of equipment that uses a small detonation to permanently fuse power lines together. Manitoba Hydro crews recently used them on a transmission line in Brandon and filmed the process.

Why we export power

Revenue from our power exports brought in more than 22% of our total electric revenue from 2010–19, or about $3.9 billion. Without our export sales, your electricity rates would be about 20% higher than they are today.
