Manitoba Hydro along with the Eco-fitt Corporation is offering free Power Smart Water & Energy Saver Kits to eligible participants. Did you know that 20 percent of your energy bill goes towards heating water?

Power Smart Water & Energy Saver Kits include environmentally friendly low-flow plumbing devices that use less water than standard devices. Reducing your water consumption will in turn reduce the energy required to heat this water. Together, these items have the potential to save you approximately $35 per year on your residential energy bill.

Who is eligible to participate?

* Manitoba Hydro residential customers who own or rent their home which is occupied on a year round basis. Seasonal residences such as cottages/cabins do not qualify as year round energy and water savings do not provide enough sufficient economic benefits to offer a kit.
* Property managers or landlords who manage or own a multi-unit residential property.

What’s included in the kit?
