This Hydro Québec data represents electricity consumption for all consumption locations in Québec by industry sector. The data is updated once a year and has been available since 2016.

Consumption data is provided by industry sector (agricultural, residential, commercial, institutional and industrial) for an entire municipality or regional county municipality (MRC) in the province of Québec.


The data is extracted from Hydro-Québec’s internal systems and compiled based on five industry sectors:

  • Agricultural
  • Commercial
  • Industrial
  • Institutional
  • Residential

Data from municipal systems (Alma, Amos, Baie-Comeau, Coaticook, Joliette, Magog, Saguenay, Sherbrooke and Westmount) and from the systems of the Coopérative régionale d’électricité de Saint-Jean-Baptiste-de-Rouville are compiled in the “Institutional” industry sector.

Given the sensitivity of electricity consumption data regarding privacy concerns and commercial interests, such data may not be available for some of the smaller municipalities.
