Terms and conditions

  • Application for incentives must be approved by Manitoba Hydro prior to commencing study or project installation.
  • Our decisions relating to product or customer eligibility, amount of electrical demand or energy savings potential, amount of incentive or any other issue will be final.
  • The program applies to both new construction and renovation projects undertaken by industrial and large commercial customers.
  • Savings shall be calculated in comparison to a customer defined and Manitoba Hydro approved Base Case system. Our decisions in respect to Base Case definition shall be final.
  • Incentives may be reduced on projects which have received financial assistance under other federal, provincial, or Manitoba Hydro energy efficiency programs.
  • Project incentives greater than the specified maximums may be approved, at the sole discretion of Manitoba Hydro, on a case-by-case basis, using additional criteria as we deem appropriate.
  • Equipment must be installed within 1 year after the incentive application is approved (this period may be extended at Manitoba Hydro’s option for large projects if necessary).
  • Demand and energy savings must be verifiable by a Manitoba Hydro representative or its Agent.
  • The Applicant shall obtain all necessary zoning, building, electrical, environmental, and other permits and licenses necessary for the project at its own cost.
  • We do not endorse or warrant any particular manufacturer, product, system, design, contractor, supplier, or installer in promoting electrical efficiency through this program.
  • The incentive will be in the form of a forgivable loan and is subject to approve credit. The forgivable loan is issued when the project is completed and forgiven after the equipment operates for the 3-year performance period.

We may modify or cancel this program at any time without notice.
