Québec Hydropower: Energy for the Future
Québec enjoys vast hydropower resources. For over 50 years, Hydro-Québec has harnessed and developed this potential with a view to profitability and with due respect for the environment and host communities. As a result, it is able to provide an affordable, reliable and sustainable supply of electricity for both domestic and export markets. At the end of 2013, the company operated a 36,068 MW generating fleet, with hydropower accounting for more than 99% of its output.
