Consumer Permit Awareness
The Manitoba Geothermal Energy Alliance requires all accredited installers to take out a permit for all geothermal installations (new, retrofit, and replacement). 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.
If you are in the process, or have had a geothermal system installed (after 2014), please contact us to ensure your geothermal contractor has taken out a permit.
When a request is received from a consumer, the Manitoba Geothermal Energy Alliance can review our records to check for a permit. If a permit is found, you’ll be provided a copy of the permit application. If no permit is found, the Manitoba Geothermal Energy Alliance will contact the member to investigate on a case by case basis.
