Our generating, transmission and distribution system is indeed a precious asset that Quebecers built and own collectively.
All rates increase, including those our industrial customers.
Few people are aware, but currently, for each dollar of electricity a Québec residential customer consumes, he actually only pays 85 ¢. The rest is financed by other types of customers (institutional, industrial, etc.).
Finally, even with the rate increase submitted to the Régie de l’énergie for 2016-2017, our residential rates for Québec customers will still be the lowest in North America.
