A solar photovoltaic (PV) system is a sustainable way to power your home or business and lower your energy bills, but installing one can be quite a big investment! The average price of installing a solar PV system in Manitoba is $3 per watt, so depending on the size of your home or business and your electricity needs, you will likely want to look into the support available to help you pay for a new system.

Through Efficiency Manitoba’s recently-announced Solar Rebate Program, you can access $0.50 per direct current (DC) watt installed on homes and businesses connected to Manitoba Hydro’s grid, up to a maximum of $5,000 per home and $25,000 per business.

Rebates are available for system sizes of up to 10 kW per home and 50 kW per business. You can install solar PV systems larger than this; however, the rebate will be capped at 10 kW per home and 50 kW per business. Read the article, Getting Started with Solar.
