the increase in population, there is an increase in consumption of energy. Renewing
and expanding our system and infrastructure to ensure a reliable supply of
energy into the future is the best possible development one could have.
current major projects, including:
III Transmission Line;
expansion outlines our mid-size projects, designed to expand and enhance our
electrical and natural gas services.
replacing, and upgrading our stations and equipment around the province is what
a system renewal does in Manitoba hydro.
projects include electrical and/or natural gas measures that will:
more efficient equipment or systems;
and reuse energy that is currently lost;
the rate of energy consumption by systems or equipment in low occupancy
unnecessary energy use by shutting off idling or unneeded equipment;
and use solar energy for heating air or water.
energy which gets saved is sold on our export markets for using it judiciously.
These savings contribute to Manitoba Hydro’s ability to have amongst the lowest
rates in North America. In addition the exported electricity which is generated
with clean hydro power replaces coal generated electricity thereby reducing the
carbon footprint of electricity generation. The IDT was determined to not simply save energy,
but to set out to prove that a new paradigm of Integrated Design would yield
the most economically efficient model.

will examine the management practices that identify measure and monitor risk at
the Crown-owned utility.
In February 2K17 the
Public Utilities Board raised concerns about the amount of risk the company was
taking related to its ambitious construction plans.
Hydro has construction plans that include an estimated $18 billion for dams and
a high-voltage transmission power line from northern generating stations to the
auditor general’s office has the power to examine documents and call witnesses.
If a power quality (PQ) problem/issue is identified and you feel that our
utility may be the source, monitoring is installed by us at the Point of Common
Benchmark- Once you have installed or if you’re
planning to install a significant non-linear load or a power factor correction
capacitor bank, we will offer to establish the baseline power quality (PQ)
characteristics of your electrical service at the Point of Common Coupling
Assessment- Monitoring is installed at the PCC and
possibly at lower voltage levels to try to identify the source and magnitude of
any PQ problems.
Audit- An audit includes an in-depth power
quality (PQ) survey the electrical distribution and grounding system.

technologies involving the mitigation of plant PQ-related problems;
Advisory services with respect to integrating your
load with our utility transmission grid;
Evaluation of new or advanced non-linear equipment
with respect to PQ issues within your plant.
High winds and downed trees have resulted in power
outages in many area of the province. Manitoba
Hydro also warned people to be cautious around downed power lines.

Manitoba Hydro states it requires these power
failures to safely upgrade the primary distribution system’s voltage from 4,000
volts to 12,000 volts. This will increase power stability, reduce voltage
fluctuations and improve the operation of machinery and electronic equipment
connected to the system.
For upgrading the current service an individual is
using, you need to submit a valid application and shall take a permit. Upgrading to a 200-amp electrical
service and running electrical wiring to serve an electric furnace or baseboard
heaters would be a cost to install new heating system.
