Crown corporation anticipates another historical peak demand Thursday morning.
Hydro-Québec posted a consumption record Wednesday and the Crown corporation anticipates another historical peak demand Thursday morning.
Preliminary evaluations show that the historical peak, recorded Wednesday morning was 38 910 MW, breaking the old record set on 24 January 2011.
This new record was beaten yet again in the evening, with 39,120 MW.
Crown corporation, which provides the needs of Quebec, expects consumption to reach yet another historical peak of 39,500 MW on Thursday morning.
Hydro-Quebec wants to reduce consumption during peak hours, on Thursday, 7 am to 9 am.
• The most effective measures to be applied are as follows:
• reduce the heating of one to two degrees (Celsius) in all parts of the house, especially those that are unoccupied;
• See a few hours use of major appliances, especially the dryer and dishwasher;
• if possible, limit the use of hot water.
Hydro-Québec wishes to set an example by reducing the heating and lighting in all its offices in Quebec. The logo and the wall of the office will be off.
