First things first

We urge you to read about the Program before applying:

Additional documents

You may begin the work once Hydro-Québec has acknowledged receipt of your letter of intent.

At this stage, no other documents are required.

Integrated Design option – New buildings

You must send us the Integrated Design form along with the letter of intent or before the initial integrated design charrette.

From the moment we receive the Integrated Design option form, we designate a Hydro-Québec engineer to your project and send you an acknowledgement of receipt.

End of the integrated design step

You must send the integrated design final report and associated documents to Hydro-Québec at

Hydro-Québec approves the report and sends you a letter confirming that it has been accepted.

You can then request payment of the financial aid for integrated design.

Once the project has been completed:

The participant and the external technical manager must fill out and sign the Confirmation of completed project and request for payment of financial assistance form (in French only), and e-mail it to Hydro-Québec with the file generated by the PPB software (extension .hqppb) to

At this stage, no other documents are required.

Note: Make sure that the measures for which you are requesting financial assistance have been implemented and that the components are functional BEFORE YOU SEND IN THE CONFIRMATION OF COMPLETED PROJECT AND REQUEST FOR PAYMENT OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FORM.

Hydro-Québec’s technical team will contact you to tell you how to submit the required documents.

Once you have submitted all the documents, including the project evaluation form generated by the PPB software tool (extension .hqppb), Hydro-Québec analyzes the request for payment of financial assistance and can also verify the compliance of the work performed at the sites where the energy efficiency measures are implemented before the financial assistance is granted.

If the work is considered non-compliant with the request for payment submitted, Hydro-Québec will reassess the project.

Hydro-Québec may request that you submit an original invoice for the approved amount and including both taxes. This invoice must be issued through your accounting system and include an invoice number.

The invoice must be send via e-mail to

Hydro-Québec will also send you the form titled Informations requises relativement au Relevé 27 – Déclaration du participant [Relevé 27 information – Participant’s declaration]. Return the completed and signed form.

Hydro-Québec will run a credit check and then pay you the financial assistance.
