Geothermal Program

If you are constructing a new building or replacing your current heating and cooling system, consider a geothermal heat pump. Geothermal systems are among the most energy efficient, comfortable, and environmentally friendly heating and cooling systems available.

Benefits

  • reduced annual heating costs of 50 to 70% (compared to a conventional electric system);
  • low, stable energy costs;
  • uniform levels of heating and cooling;
  • maximum use of office or retail space (requires less room than traditional mechanical systems);
  • no smoke stacks or rooftop chillers and reduced roof structural requirements;
  • demonstration of environmental stewardship and green commercial practices.

Our Geothermal Program provides financial incentives to customers who install a geothermal heat pump system to replace a conventional electric heating system. To be eligible for financial incentives, you must have your project pre-approved by Manitoba Hydro prior to the installation or purchase of a geothermal heat pump system.
