Demand response program

Demand response program

Hydro-Québec’s demand response (DR) program is designed to encourage commercial and institutional customers and small and medium-sized industrial businesses to reduce their buildings’ power demand during Hydro-Québec’s winter peaks. This will enable Hydro-Québec to meet its customers’ energy needs at the best possible price.

The DR Program has been renewed for winter 2017–2018.

While no changes have been made to the Program’s terms and conditions for winter 2017–2018, the registration process has been streamlined. New versions of the Participant’s Guide and registration form are now online. To participate in the Program, you need to submit your registration form by September 8, 2017.

If you took part in the DR Program in winter 2016–2017 and wish to reapply for winter 2017–2018, you must submit a new registration form.

Hydro-Québec’s Demand response program gives companies the opportunity to propose a project that would allow them to reduce their buildings’ power demand during Hydro-Québec’s winter peaks (earling morning and late afternoon). In return, the company receives financial assistance from Hydro-Québec’s.

Amount of financial assistance

  • The amount of financial assistance is calculated by multiplying the eligible power (in kW) by the unit amount ($).
  • The unit amount for the 2017–2018 winter period is $70.

Eligible power (kW)

“Eligible power” (kW) is the average power reduction for all .

Power reduction

The power reduction is calculated as the difference between the reference power and the real power for a DR event.
