Dual energy for farms

If your farm is equipped with one or more dual-energy systems and your electricity service contract is eligible for Rate D or Rate DM, you could benefit from an overall lower rate, Rate DT, if you meet the eligibility criteria. Under this rate, pricing varies according to the temperature.

A dual-energy heating systems uses two energy sources:

  • electricity as the main source, i.e., when the outdoor temperature is above or equal to −12°C or −15°C, depending on the climate zones defined by Hydro-Québec, and
  • fuel as a source of backup heating, when the temperature drops below that level.
