One Simple Way to Save Money – Energy Finance Plan

by / Thursday, 11 December 2014 / Published in Articles, Fireplaces

Buying and installing a new fireplace can be costly. At Alsip’s we want you to enjoy the fireplace experience rather than dwell on the price tag. To help with the costs of a new fireplace install or upgrade, Manitoba Hydro has introduced the Energy Finance Plan. The Energy Finance plan is a convenient, on-bill financing for upgrades to gas and electrical systems and is available to Manitoba Hydro residential, commercial, farm, and seasonal customers.
