In this period of intense cold, Hydro-Quebec expects record electricity consumption. According to his estimates, the needs of Quebec's population expected to reach approximately 38,000 megawatts (MV), above the record consumption of 37,230 registered MV January 16, 2009.
Hydro-Quebec would ask its customers to reduce their consumption during peak times this morning between 6 am and 9 pm tonight between 16 pm and 20 pm, and tomorrow morning during the same hours. A few simple tricks such as reducing lighting outdoors, limit the use of hot water and the use of certain appliances such as dishwashers, washer and dryer is recommended.
A good time, so for some off their Christmas decorations.
