Major renovations

The Rénoclimat® program created by Transition énergétique Québec (TEQ) provides support for renovation projects to help maximize your savings. Certified advisors are available to assess your home’s energy efficiency and conduct a blower door test to quantify any air leaks. Based on the results, the advisor will give your home an energy rating and suggest retrofits to improve its efficiency.

Sustainable urban development

More and more, developers, contractors and municipalities are embracing sustainable values when building new subdivisions or revitalizing existing neighborhoods to reflect residents’ concerns.

When creating ecodistricts, designers are guided by key values such as enhancing natural areas and fostering responsible water consumption, sustainable mobility, and energy savings. These elements provide a better quality of life and help preserve the environment.

In an effort to support the development of ecodistricts, Hydro-Québec provides financial assistance to developers, contractors and municipalities that carry out electricity-saving sustainable urban projects.
