Solar energy enthusiasts gathered in Winnipeg recently to shed some light on something that didn't really exist here a year ago — a market for solar energy in Manitoba.
The Manitoba Environmental Industries Association, which organized the event, hopes the Energy Summit becomes an annual event. How long the sun shines on the industry may depend on whether Manitoba Hydro continues offering its $1 per watt incentive on solar installations announced last April that has jump-started the influx of more solar installations in the province.
The Manitoba government took steps recently to control spending and policies at Crown corporations, and to set up a new agency to promote energy conservation.
The Progressive Conservatives introduced a bill that would allow cabinet ministers to set specific policies and performance targets for any Crown corporation they are responsible for.
Ron Schuler, the minister for Crown services, said advertising at monopoly entities such as Manitoba Hydro and Manitoba Public Insurance is one area where policies could change.
Workers assembling a tower related to the Manitoba Hydro Bipole III power line recently escaped injury when the tower collapsed.
The accident in the Fox Lake-Gillam area caused Manitoba Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) to issue a stop work order against Forbes Bros. Ltd., the company doing the work for Manitoba Hydro.
"The investigation identified that the structural failure occurred as specific components required in the construction of the tower had not yet been installed," said a spokesperson for WSH.
The wicked winter weather that descended on Thompson and much of the rest of Manitoba recently and didn't relent for the better part of three days shut down businesses and forced essential services to rely on unconventional equipment and deal with staff shortages until roads were clear and people could once again begin to go about their regular daily routines.
The Association of Manitoba Municipalities wants to make sure the Power Smart program will continue, even if it won't be part of Manitoba Hydro.
The creation of a separate energy efficiency agency was part of Progressive Conservative campaign promises in 2015, drawn from a 2014 recommendation by the Public Utilities Board.
In the November 2016 throne speech, the provincial government announced it would legislate "a stand-alone energy efficiency agency to help households and businesses reduce their energy needs, saving Manitobans money now and into the future."
