The two components were merged into the Catered Projects component.
The following rules were standardized for all projects and rates:
* Note: For projects involving a new plant, an expansion or the addition of product lines, the baseline scenario (eligible savings and costs) always includes standard or regulation equipment.
Projects covered: This rule applies to all new projects for which a complete and compliant proposal is submitted to Hydro-Québec as of February 15, 2017.
Submitted projects for which the start date is on or after February 15, 2017: The Hydro-Québec engineer assigned to the proposal will contact you, if appropriate, to inform you of how these new rules impact your project.
The project completion deadline—from the time the project proposal is received to when the completed project is submitted—is extended from 24 to 36 months. This extension also applies to projects that are currently underway.
Eligible projects must aim to reduce specific electricity consumption or achieve better operational efficiency in electricity use.
As of February 15, the following analyses will be eligible:
Instructions : When you access the new form, the instructions and relevant fields appear based on the project phase you select (Letter of intent or Confirmation of project completion).
Exception : To confirm the completion of your project, use the Confirmation of completed project and request for payment of financial assistance form.
You must use the new streamlined form to submit a new project under Hydro-Québec’s Catered or Electricity Consumption Analysis component.
The participant’s guides for the Electricity Consumption Analysis and Prescriptive Measures components have been revamped. The guide for the Catered Projects component follows the same model. « Guides are available in French only. »
Be sure to read the new guide to carry out your project.
