Canada’s Manitoba Hydro offers solar energy incentive program

Power Smart Solar Energy Program allows customers to use solar energy they need and sell excess

Manitoba Hydro’s Power Smart Solar Energy Program, announced Friday, allows home and business owners to generate their own electricity with solar panels and sell excess energy back to the utility.

The program will cover the installation of solar photovoltaic systems, which use solar cells to convert solar energy into electricity, at a rate of $1 per watt installed. That would cover roughly 25 per cent of the upfront capital costs of new installations.
