That’s a very good question. No building or part of a building should be built less than three metres from a medium-voltage line without Hydro-Québec’s authorization. Our customers’ safety is a top priority. Please keep in mind the higher up the line, the more dangerous it is.
If it’s a pad-mounted transformer, visit the Safety near a pad-mounted transformersection of our Web site (in french only).
You should also note that Hydro-Québec’s servitudes are indicated on your property’s certificate of location. Consult your notary for details.
