Impact of recent solar policy changes in Winnipeg—and the outlook for community solar in the province of Manitoba

KEY POINTS
  • Winnipeg's city council recently adopted "change for solar" which removes a requirement of an Electrical engineer stamp for small-scale residential projects. This move will save residential customers up to $1200.
  • An expedited process is now in place to handle solar projects in 10 days, which will also benefit projects over 10kW. Prior to this change, the administrative process for solar could take up to 6 months to complete.
  • We explore what's next for the city and the potential for community solar projects with Lorena Mitchell, President of Evolve Energy, Chair of Manitoba Sustainable Energy, and member of the Sustainable Buildings Manitoba Policy Committee.
