Electricity Delivery

Manitoba Hydro has extensive infrastructure to support delivery of power in the province. There is roughly 11,000km of transmission corridors throughout the province, outside towns and cities.

The transmission system transports electricity at high voltages from the generating stations to other parts of Manitoba Hydro's provincial power system, as well as to other utilities' power systems. The distribution system transforms the higher voltages to useable levels for delivery to customers, and maintains steady voltage levels in spite of continuously changing demands for power during the course of a day or a season.
