Manitoba Hydro expands Power Smart rebates (Fall 2016)
September 29, 2016 - Manitoba Hydro says its newest Power Smart promotion means more savings in energy and money.
Along with the return of instant rebates on LED bulbs, Power Smart now offers instant rebates on a number of other technologies, such as lighting controls, smart power bars, plug-in timers, low-flow showerheads, weatherstripping and window insulating film kits.
From September 30 - October 31, 2016, at participating retailers province-wide, consumers can get these instant rebates and until January 31, 2017, they can also receive a Manitoba Hydro bill credit for the purchase of a “smart thermostat” and/or Energy Star-certified washing machine or washer/dryer pair. Customers can purchase eligible products from any retailer of their choice, or buy online, and then visit Manitoba Hydro’s website at hydro.mb.ca/savings to apply for their rebate.
Since the first LED rebate program launched in the fall of 2014, more than 85,000 households have purchased Energy Star-certified LED bulbs, saving roughly $3.6 million a year on their electricity bills, according to the utility.
“Our customers have responded overwhelmingly to our earlier promotions by purchasing and using LEDs in their homes,” said Lloyd Kuczek, vice-president of customer care & energy conservation for Manitoba Hydro. “Our goal with this new promotion is to continue to help our residential customers learn more about other energy-efficient technologies so they can lower their energy bills.”
Retailers participating in the instant rebate promotion this October are: Ace Canada, Best Buy, Canadian Tire, Co-op grocery stores, Co-op home centres, Costco, EG Penner, Grunthal Lumber, Home Hardware, London Drugs, McMunn & Yates Building Supplies, Robinson Lighting, Rona and Rona Home & Garden, The Home Depot and WM Dyck & Sons.
