Meeting the electricity needs of today and tomorrow while supporting economic and social development
To meet the sector’s growing electricity needs, Hydro-Québec will be investing over $500 million to upgrade its transmission system in the north-south axis of the island of Montréal, between the boroughs of Saint-Laurent and LaSalle. As the system’s equipment is aging, it must be replaced.
This project also aims to maintain the reliability of electricity supply and ensure continuity of service over the long term for all the region’s residents.
Hydro-Québec will add approximately 500 MW of capacity to support economic and social development in the following sectors:
- Commercial and residential development projects
- Public transit projects such as a Réseau express métropolitain (REM) station and Société de transport de Montréal (STM) garages for recharging electric buses
- Manufacturing projects
- Data centers and greenhouses
