In July 2014 we broke ground on the 695-megawatt Keeyask Generating Station in northern Manitoba. Development of the Keeyask Project is a collaborative effort between Manitoba Hydro and four Manitoba First Nations.
Manitoba hydropower diversifies energy portfolios, avoids reliance on natural gas, and provides long-term cost certainty.
Carbon emission reduction
Our hydropower is assisting U.S. utilities with meeting their emissions requirements through a renewable, non-emitting, virtually carbon-free source of energy.
As the only large-scale, non-emitting, and non-intermittent resource in the Midwest, Manitoba hydropower complements the output of U.S. domestic renewables (wind/solar).
Integrated and reliable
Hydropower from Manitoba is improving U.S. regional reliability and market efficiencies.
Regional transmission solutions
Enhanced transmission between Manitoba and MISO would result in savings to U.S. customers.
Sustainable development projects
Our energy resources are being developed with a commitment to the environment and working closely with local Aboriginal communities.
