June 10, 2022 – Citing a second successful season in the residential sector, Hydro-Quebec subsidiary Hilo is now expanding its offer to businesses across Quebec.

Hilo is offering organizations “a simple, reliable and automated smart energy management option and personalized service” to help optimize their electricity demand in peak winter periods.

“Hilo aims to serve as a virtual generating station by coordinating electricity demand to meet the needs of the power system,” said Sébastien Fournier, president & CEO, Hilo. “Organizations that use energy wisely help decrease future electricity needs and limit greenhouse gas emissions.”

Starting this year, businesses and institutions will be eligible to participate in Hilo challenges and earn rewards, just like residential customers.

Organizations allow Hilo to adjust their building’s heating, ventilation and humidity levels for about 100 hours in winter when electricity demand in Quebec is highest.

By freeing up this energy, organizations can earn cash rewards “that can add up to thousands of dollars”, says Hilo, adding that it will work with firms specializing in building automation to ensure the compatibility of its solution with current systems.
