Reduce your REC purchases to almost nil

With 99.9% of our electricity generated mainly from water and wind, the need to compensate with Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) becomes a thing of the past.

Meet your energy efficiency goals

Our clean energy and energy-efficiency programs can help you attain various environmental standards or certifications, including LEED. Discover how we’ve adapted our programs specifically for data centers and how we can help you keep your PUE ratio low.

We’ll show you how. Let’s talk!

Each year, a 100-GWh data center deployed in Québec avoids
