Hydro-Québec thanks the public for their cooperation: normal electricity consumption can resume

MONTREAL, Jan. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Hydro-Québec would like to thank all its customers for their invaluable contribution during this latest cold snap. We also wish to thank the members of the media for their cooperation. This collective effort, launched on Sunday, January 23, has resulted in lowering electricity consumption by approximately 300 MW during the peak demand hours.

In light of the fact that electricity consumption for this evening is forecast at 34 800 MW and that temperatures are on the rise, Hydro-Québec informs the public that they can resume their usual electricity consumption during peak hours. We use this opportunity to remind our customers that the efficient use of electricity year-round is always a responsible choice.

Electricity demand in Québec reached a historic peak yesterday morning at 7:38 a.m., hitting 38 286 MW. The temperature in Montréal during the peak was - 28 degrees Celcius.
