Utilities to exchange hydroelectric, power capacity to help meet demands

Great River Energy signed a 200 MW seasonal diversity exchange with Manitoba Hydro that runs until 2030. The latest exchange is an extension of a 150 MW arrangement that has been in place since 1995.

The exchange means Manitoba Hydro will provide 200 MW of hydroelectric capacity to Great River Energy in the summer to meet peak demands, and Great River Energy will provide Manitoba Hydro with 200 MW of capacity in the winter to meet increased demand in Winnipeg.
