Development As the province grows in population

Development

As
the province grows in population and industry, so does the demand for energy.
We are constantly working to renew and expand our system and infrastructure to
ensure a reliable supply of energy into the future.

We
are currently working on several major projects, including:

1.     
Bipole
III Transmission Line;

2.     
Keeyask
Generating Station;

3.     
Manitoba—Minnesota
Transmission Line.

Transmission
expansion outlines our mid-size projects, designed to expand and enhance our
electrical and natural gas services.

Customization

System
renewal looks at the work we’re doing to repair, replace, and upgrade our
stations and equipment around the province.

Typical
projects include electrical and/or natural gas measures that will:

 

Use
more efficient equipment or systems;

Recover
and reuse energy that is currently lost;

Reduce
the rate of energy consumption by systems or equipment in low occupancy
periods;

Eliminate
unnecessary energy use by shutting off idling or unneeded equipment;

Capture
and use solar energy for heating air or water.

Metric development

The
energy saved in the building is sold on our export markets. 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.

Demonstrations

As
part of our Bio energy Optimization Program we developed bio energy
demonstration projects with real-world applications that will enhance the
operational efficiencies of several Manitoba industrial and agricultural
businesses.

Syngas

Manitoba
Hydro collaborated with Pineland Forest Nursery and Community Power Corporation
to develop a Syngas Demonstration Project at Hadashville, Manitoba.

Waste
head

Manitoba
Hydro collaborated with Spruce Products Limited and Waste Gas Power to develop
a Waste Heat Demonstration Project at Spruce Products’ lumber sawmill in Swan
River, Manitoba.

Pilots

They
are responsible for ensuring that electricity reaches your home, and also read
and maintain your meter.

Making
an Appointment with Manitoba Hydro in Pilot Mound

Audit

Auditors
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.

Manitoba
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
south.

The
auditor general’s office has the power to examine documents and call witnesses.

Quality

·        
Investigation-
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
Coupling (PCC).

·        
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
(PCC).

·        
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.

·        
Information
services-
evaluation of new
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.

Deficiencies
Identification

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.

Customer
Service

Call us 24/7 to report electric or natural gas
emergencies. Can mail them between 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Always ready to serve for the needs of the
customers.

Performance

Increased system efficiency/reduced energy consumption;

Greater reliability/reduced maintenance;

Improved financial performance;

Reduced environmental impact.

Invoicing

Sign up for My Bill and manage your account
information securely online. My Bill is paper-free, less clutter and better for
the environment. For watching your bill online you need your account number and
the number from one of your meters. Payments
are accepted at our head office at 360 Portage Ave.

System
Improvements

Manitoba Hydro states it requires these outages 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.

Upgrading

For upgrading 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.

Education

Power electricians construct, maintain and
commission electrical apparatus used in electrical power generation,
transmission, distribution and converter systems. During your training you will be rotated to
different work locations and may spend considerable time away from home at the
corporation’s expense.
