Create a $300M fund for environmental restoration, green retrofits, agricultural emissions reductions programmes, wind and solar power, and EV charging stations
"To grow a greener province, a Manitoba Liberal Government will create a $300-million Green Fund that will support Manitobans in restoring the environment, offering energy-saving retrofits and ultimately fighting climate change.
Manitoba Liberals will renegotiate a deal with the Federal Government to redirect a portion of the revenue from the pollution pricing plan so that we can set our own conditions. In addition, we will establish new green building codes for both new builds and retrofits.
The Green Fund will be partially funded by Efficiency Manitoba, Manitoba Hydro, and a redirected portion of the revenue from the pollution pricing plan.
Eligible projects under the Green Fund will include, but are not limited to:
» Efficiency programs for producers to reduce the impact of agricultural greenhouse emissions, such as N02;
» Residential and commercial green retrofits to reduce home energy costs including to the removal of radon and replace lead water pipes;
» Increasing wind and solar power generating stations across the province;
» Increasing the number of EV charging stations." — Dougald Lamont & the Manitoba Liberals — Real Choice, Real Change
