All rates increase, including those our industrial customers. We are committed to limiting our request for a rate increase to the inflation rate for the year 2016-2017.
Few people are aware of it, but currently, for each dollar of electricity Québec residential customers consume, they actually pay only 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.
