Hydro-Québec’s demand response (DR) program is designed to encourage commercial and institutional customers and small and medium-sized industrial businesses to reduce their buildings’ power demand during Hydro-Québec’s winter peaks.

All participants must agree to implement measures designed to reduce power demand, but they are not obligated to achieve any specific power demand reduction during Demand Response events.
