Hydro's free kits save water, energy and money

  • Print

MANITOBA Hydro wants to give you free showerheads. In return, homeowners or renters will save money.

The new Power Smart Water and Energy Saver Program will provide free kits, which include the showerheads, to save water, energy and reduce your carbon footprint.

The program is open to customers who own or rent their home as well as property managers and landlords who manage or own a multi-unit residential property.

"Helping Manitobans conserve energy and water reduces household bills and helps the environment," Rosann Wowchuk, minister responsible for Manitoba Hydro, said in a statement Friday announcing the program.

Bob Brennan, Hydro's president and CEO, said "the water- and energy-saving devices in these kits use low-flow technology that is up to 40 per cent more efficient than other low-flow or standard devices in the market today."

It is estimated the kit will save Manitobans up to $35 a year on their residential energy bills and about 9,500 litres of water annually.

The kit has one to two low-flow showerheads, two low-flow faucet aerators, three metres of hot water heater pipe wrap, Teflon tape, hot water heater temperature gauge, and a refrigerator/freezer thermometer.

To get a kit, call 1-877-326-3488, go to www.ecofitt.ca/mbhydro or wait to complete the order form in the fall Hydro bill.
