The pilot project is back this spring!

In light of the significant interest expressed by businesses in Hydro-Québec’s Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and the success of the pilot project that ended on June 30, 2023, we have decided to relaunch the initiative this spring. Phase II will be open to a limited number of preselected customers who will be contacted directly by their account representative. More information on the terms and conditions coming soon.

Proof that your company uses 100% renewable energy

Hydro-Québec’s electricity mix is among the most renewable in the world (>99%), yet some organizations are required to prove they consume 100% renewable energy. How can they do this? With renewable energy certificates (RECs). By purchasing RECs, you become the sole owner of the environmental attributes associated with your use of 100% renewable electricity.

Good news! Hydro‑Québec has launched a pilot project providing a simple way to meet your needs. Learn more about RECs!

What’s a renewable energy certificate?

A renewable energy certificate (REC) is equal to 1 MWh of electricity generated from a 100% renewable source.

How does it work?

Although, more than 99% of Hydro-Québec’s electricity is generated from renewable sources,

you can’t say for sure where your electricity comes from ...

unless your company purchases RECs!

When you purchase a REC for the amount of electricity your building uses in a year, you become the owner of the environmental attributes associated with the energy the building consumes.
