Manitoba Hydro is one of Canada’s major energy utilities. Today it provides electricity at rates that are among the lowest in Canada. Over 95% of the electricity produced in Manitoba comes from 15 hydroelectric facilities located on the Nelson, Winnipeg, Saskatchewan, Burntwood and Laurie rivers.
The remaining electricity production comes a combination of thermal, diesel and wind. A new hydroelectric station, the 695 MW Keeyask project, is under construction in partnership with four local aboriginal First Nations.
