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, DP or 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.
