Make your company a change agent! By participating in our Hilo consumption reduction challenges, you’ll help reduce the demand on the electrical grid during peak times, in addition to contributing to creating a greener Québec. Challenge completed? You earn cash rewards.
Hilo challenges are held during peak winter periods for the electricity grid. There can be up to 30 challenges between December 1 and March 31. Your participation in a challenge automatically reduces your building’s electricity demand. Each unused kilowatt hour earns you a cash reward. Challenges can take place in the morning, evening or both.
A Hilo challenge consists of up to 3 phases, and the duration varies depending on your building’s unique settings.
Your building's participation is automatic! The day before each challenge, you’ll receive an email notification before 6 p.m. You can always cancel your participation before the preheating phase, via our energy tracking tool.
When a very large amount of energy is used at the same time, a spike in consumption occurs. The grid is then congested for a few hours. This is called a “peak period.”
