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.

Keep your home running safe and smoothly in winter

Manitoba Hydro crews work through extreme conditions to ensure you have reliable electric and natural gas service during the winter. Extreme wind chills, excessive snow and snowdrifts can block roads and generally make access to our equipment more difficult.

How Hydro works with lake sturgeon

Manitoba Hydro has been operating hydropower stations for over 100 years. While it sounds like a long time, it pales in comparison to a much older river resident: lake sturgeon.

Space heaters – only for temporary use

A space heater can be a quick and easy way to warm up a room. But it can also pose a fire risk if not used correctly. Space heaters are also not intended as a permanent heat source, but only used as a temporary heat source in a home or garage.

Scam reports jump in 2019

More Hydro customers are getting bogus e-mails and texts attempting to scam them out of their money. We do not ask for prepaid debit cards, payments over the phone, or ask customers to wire money.

More outages expected – be prepared

Trees are many things: living time capsules, air filters, decorations, places to play, and a distinctive and beautiful part of our province. They’re also a very common cause of power outages in Manitoba.
