Manitoba Permitting for Residential Geothermal Installations
May 4, 2021
Presented by MEIA and the Manitoba Geothermal Energy Alliance.
The Manitoba Geothermal Energy Alliance (MGEA) requires accredited installers to take out a permit for all geothermal installations. Accredited installers need to remain in good standing to qualify for Manitoba Hydro loans and Provincial grants; as a requirement for accredited installers, failure to take out permits can affect their membership status resulting in consumers being unable to obtain these loans and grants. This course provides live instruction on the process of how to fill out MGEA permits
Indigenous Clean Energy Webinar

During this webinar, we will take closer look at how Indigenous communities and peoples are leading the way for Canada’s clean energy transition. The session will be hosted by the Indigenous Clean Energy Social Enterprise (ICE) – Canada’s leading non-profit for Indigenous clean energy capacity-building. ICE will discuss how they have helped advance broad sustainable prosperity by supporting First Nation, Inuit and Métis clean energy participation and leadership from coast-to-coast-to-coast. ICE is an open and inclusive community where Indigenous peoples and allies strengthen their capacity and relationships by engaging in intensive collaboration to make clean energy projects a reality.
