Rates effective April 1, . This table does not replace the Electricity Rates document in any way whatsoever.

Understanding rates

Rates generally have three main components that reflect the actual costs incurred to provide electricity service.

System access charge

Amount you pay for service. At Rate Flex D, it is expressed in cents per day.

Energy

You are billed for the amount of energy you actually use.

Power demand

“Power demand” is not part of Rate Flex D.

Electricity rates may also include other components

Credit for medium- or high-voltage supply

Hydro-Québec grants a supply credit of per kilowatthour (kWh) to Rate Flex D customers to whom it supplies electricity at 5 kilovolts or higher.

Domestic rates, like the other rates, assume that electricity will be supplied at low voltage. If you have equipment to step down the voltage of the electricity delivered to you or if you use electricity at medium or high voltage, that means reduced costs for Hydro‑Québec. That’s why we grant you a monthly credit.
