Sell excess electricity

More in this section

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.

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.

Existing Solar Energy Pilot Program participants

If you participated in the Manitoba Hydro Solar Energy Pilot Program and are selling your property, you may transfer your purchase agreement to the new owner.

Complete and email the agreement within 30 days from the title transfer of the property.
