If your business or organization has a place of business in Québec, you may participate in Hydro-Québec’s Efficient Solutions Program by submitting a project for any building owned, operated or occupied by one or more of your customers. As a project aggregator, you will represent customers that are too small to have access to the program, and you will receive the financial assistance.

Your role as an aggregator

Your responsibilities are the same as those of an eligible customer that submits a project for a building it owns, operates or occupies. In other words, your role is the same as any program participant’s.

As an aggregator, you will:

  • bring together projects related to more than one building owned, operated or occupied by one or more of your customers into a single integrated project
  • be Hydro-Québec’s only point of contact throughout the project
  • notify each of your customers that owns, operates or occupies the building(s) targeted by the project and provide Hydro-Québec with written proof
  • inform your customers of your role as well as the program requirements by sending them the Notice of participation in the Efficient Solutions Program  [DOCX 33 Ko - in French only.]
  • take all necessary actions with your customers to fulfill your undertakings
  • submit all the documents required by Hydro-Québec in a single application for financial assistance
  • comply with all the requirements set out in the Participant’s Guide and Conditions and Undertakings: use the OSE online tool to submit the application to Hydro-Québec under the Simplified Option
  • obtain copies of all supporting documents related to the project
  • ensure that the results and documents comply with program requirements
  • receive the financial support and Relevé 27

Your benefits as an aggregator

  • receive the financial assistance
  • sharpen your competitive edge
  • become an energy efficiency influencer
  • be a force for change
  • represent customers that would otherwise not have been able to enrol in the program
  • expand your business footprint in the market
