Power Smart Water & Energy Saver Program
Did you know that the second largest use of energy in a home, next to space heating, is water heating?
Did you know that installing low-flow plumbing fixtures in your home will reduce both water and energy consumption?
Manitoba Hydro's 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. So, in addition to saving water, you'll reduce your annual energy bill and carbon footprint all at the same time.
The Power Smart Water & Energy Saver Kits are available at no charge and may include up to two low-flow showerheads, low-flow aerators for your kitchen and bathroom faucets, a length of hot water heater pipe insulation and other items that will help you save water and energy. Together, these items have the potential to save you up to $65 per year on your energy and water* bills.

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 their year round energy and water savings do not provide sufficient economic benefits to offer a kit.
- Property managers or landlords who manage or own a multi-unit residential property.
If you have recently participated in Manitoba Hydro's Affordable Energy Program (AEP) you will already be receiving the benefits of using water and energy saving devices. The AEP program offers similar technologies and there would be no added benefit for you to participate in the Power Smart Water and Energy Saver program.
