“Hydro Quebec’s system is under serious strain as temperatures continue to drop and people’s electricity demands continue to rise.”
“The temperature in Valdor, Quebec, dropped to -50 C (-58 F) and -30 C (-22 F) in Montreal and Quebec city this morning, Saturday, with the wind,” says reader Pierre Demers.
“Hydro Quebec is asking the people to turn down their heating systems because Thursday the demand was 36,000 Megawatt and the Maximum of the utility is 38,000 Mg.”
“If it was Monday or Tuesday it would be a total blackout because of the demand of industries are at idle on weekends.”
