WINNIPEG — Manitoba could need new energy generation as early as 2029 and must look for ways to encourage people to reduce demand, the head of the province’s Crown energy corporation said Tuesday.
Manitoba Hydro is planning to reach out to independent energy producers to supply power from wind and other sources in the coming years.
“I’m confident and optimistic it’ll be Manitoba-based businesses and companies, it’ll be Manitoba Indigenous nations and companies (that) will bid in,” chief executive Jay Grewal said in an interview after a speech to the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce.
