No, you don’t need a lease to open a residential customer account with Hydro-Québec. All you have to do is fill in the Become a Customer form on our Web site. It’s quick and simple.
You will be charged a fee of $50 (before taxes) when you open the account. You will pay a lower fee if you’ve had an electricity service contract in the past five years.
If you prefer to open your account by phone, you can call us at 1 888 385 7252.
