NDP government helping families reduce utility bills, make homes more efficient

NOVEMBER 28, 2012

Premier Selinger and your NDP government are taking an innovative approach to improving affordability and quality of life for the residents of the William Whyte community.

In the recent speech from the throne, your NDP government highlighted upcoming projects for improvements to community policing as well as a new program to help create jobs, save residents money and conserve energy.

The new Power Smart Neighbourhood project, a partnership between Manitoba Hydro and the North End Community Renewal Corporation, will give eligible William Whyte residents access to two programs that improve energy and water efficiency. The work done under the project will be contracted to Manitoba Green Retrofits and Inner City Renovations, two non-profit social enterprises that train and employ people facing barriers to employment.

“Making life more affordable remains a priority for your government. This project will make homes more efficient, improve the quality of life for area families, and help keep utility costs among the lowest in the country,” said Selinger.

The announcement comes on the heels of Manitoba Hydro’s new Pay As You Save (PAYS) program that provides families with convenient and affordable financing options to make energy efficiency upgrades to their homes.
