Multiple areas of activity are targeted:
Educational institutions (such as public or private high schools, colleges or universities)
Retail superstores (such as Winners, Rona, Costco or Home Depot)
Supermarkets (such as Metro, IGA or Loblaw)
Benefits of being a project aggregator
By becoming a project aggregator, electrical contractors and product distributors can improve their competitiveness.
In this example, the aggregator’s customers could have applied directly to Hydro-Québec for financial assistance, but preferred to call on an expert, which greatly streamlined their project management process.
Total financial assistance
38 LED fixtures (20,000 lumens) featured on the DLC Premium list with occupancy detector (maximum assistance of $79 per fixture)
500 LED fixtures (6,000 lumens) featured on the DLC Premium list with occupancy detector (maximum assistance of $40 per fixture)
225 LED fixtures (20,000 lumens) featured on the DLC Premium list with adaptive control** (maximum assistance of $91 per fixture)
100 high-bay LED fixtures (20,000 lumens) featured on the DLC Premium list (maximum assistance of $61 per fixture)
Total financial assistance for the project
*Figures are rounded. **You’ll receive an extra 30% when you install occupancy sensors.
Hydro-Québec will provide $50,000 in financial assistance to the electrical contractor or product distributor, which will then divide this amount among its customers based on its business arrangements with them.
