Our Lighting Program offers incentives to commercial renovation projects that install energy efficient lighting.

If your business operates its lighting systems less than the required 2,000 hours per year, you may qualify for pro-rated incentives, as follows:

  • 1,000 to 1,499 hours – 33%;
  • 1,500 to 1,999 hours – 50%.

Farm shops (including those billed residentially) operating their lighting for 1,000 hours per year or more may be eligible for an incentive of 33% of current financial incentive offerings. The project must still follow the program eligibility requirements and does require pre-approval.

If the farm shop is used to operate a commercial business, is billed as a commercial customer or has a business license, and meets the 2,000 annual operating hours for the lighting system, talk to your Manitoba Hydro account representative for incentive amounts.

Hotel/motel room in-suite lighting projects are eligible for up to 50% of incentives.

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

You must complete a program application and receive pre-approval from Manitoba Hydro on your lighting upgrade prior to purchasing or installing any new lighting, or removing any existing lighting. Projects already in progress do not qualify for incentives. Contact your Manitoba Hydro account representative for a program application.
