Lighting Program

All projects require pre-approval by Manitoba Hydro prior to purchasing or installing new lighting or removing any existing lighting.


To qualify for incentives, you must be a Manitoba Hydro commercial customer billed at the electrical general service rate and operate lighting for 2,000 hours per year.

Installations must meet all electrical code guidelines. Read more about program-specific requirements.

How to take part

Our pre-approval is required before purchasing or installing lighting equipment for your renovation project. New lighting must be installed within one year of our pre-approval.

If you are installing lighting in a new construction project, apply for incentives through the New Buildings Program.
