Renovation program

  • This grant aims to encourage renovations that will improve the thermal envelope of buildings. The goal? To make buildings more energy efficient and thus reduce energy costs. The work may include replacing windows, insulating walls and roofs, installing thermal screens for greenhouses, etc.
  • The amount of the grant is established based on your consumption and can go up to $ 40,000 if your consumption is lower than 150,000 m3/year and up to $100,000 if your consumption is higher than 150,000 m3/year.
Energy Analysis Program:
  • Receive a grant to conduct an energy analysis and find potential projects/measures involving the efficient use of electricity.
  • Subsidizes 100% of the eligible costs of the energy analysis up to $50,000 per site. 
  • Grant paid in two installments: (i) First installment of 40% of eligible cost (up to $20,000) when the study is approved by Hydro-Quebec; (ii) Second installment of 60% of eligible cost (up to $30,000) following the installation of one or more energy efficient measures included in the energy analysis.
Project Implementation – Efficient Solutions Program:
  • The grant can go up to 90% of eligible costs for small businesses (Electrical Rate G)  and up to 75% of eligible costs for medium & large businesses (Electrical Rate M).
  • The grant is based on 30 cents the kWh saved and can go up to 3 $ million per project for medium and large businesses.

The Eco Leader grant program was launched in November 2019 and is aimed to subsidize studies and implementation support of eco-responsible practices OR the implementation of clean technologies. It has a budget envelop of $18.5 million.
