Manitoba Solar Incentives
Make Your Own Power
Federal Climate Action Incentive Fund
If you’re a small or medium sized business owned (includes farmers) in Saskatchewan or Manitoba, there has never been a better time to go solar. Effective immediately, the federal government has launched an initiative to help fight climate change under the Climate Action Incentive Fund. The CAIF fund provides a refund of up to 25% on all energy-saving equipment.
Funding will range between $20,000 and $250,000 per project and eligible projects include the production of renewable energy – including solar. This federal funding is in addition to any provincial funding.
Manitoba has been allocated $13 million of the fund, so there’s plenty to go around. It’s first-come, first-serve, so do not hesitate to reach out to one of our Solar Advisors to find out more information.
Manitoba Solar Incentives, Residential and Agricultural
When switching to residential solar power systems, Manitoba residents can expect to enjoy long-term savings on electricity. As utility bills continue to rise every year, your one-time investment in solar panels will mean that you will no longer have to pay monthly electricity bills. Within your first 20 years of using solar power, your savings can amount to at least $30,000.
The installation of residential solar panels can also increase the value of your property by as much as $20,000. Adding to the value of your home, your investment can be paid off if you decide to sell. If you do decide to sell, that essentially makes your solar install and power consumption free!
The Residential Earth Power Loan is for those making energy efficiency upgrades to their home, including solar photovoltaic systems.
