Let’s truly fight climate change by choosing more eco-friendly energy solutions.

Renewable natural gas

Switch to energy made from waste

Opting for renewable natural gas means choosing clean energy produced entirely from organic waste.

How renewable natural gas is produced

  • An apple Food

    Ready to eat. Bon appétit!

  • An apple core Food scraps

    From your brown bin to the biomethanation plant.

  • A biomethanation tank Biomethanation

    The waste is broken down inside a biodigester, producing RNG.

  • A thermostat working inside a home Renewable natural gas

    Renewable natural gas can be injected into the natural gas network to meet energy needs in a more sustainable way.

Dual energy

Heat better with dual energy

By choosing dual energy—which combines electricity from Hydro-Québec and natural gas from Énergir—rest assured that the right kind of energy is being used at the right time, all for the best possible price.

The dual-energy system

  • 10 °C - - - 0 °C - - - -12 °C

    Most of the time, buildings are heated with electricity.

    As temperatures fall, the demand for electricity rises.

    During peak periods, when it’s -12 °C or colder, natural gas takes over.

  • Together Énergir and Hydro-Québec developed a solution to quickly reduce GHG emissions, all while minimizing rate increases for their customers.

  • 540,000 tons
    less GHG
    emitted by 2030 thanks to dual energy. It’s the equivalent of 125,000 fewer cars on the road, but at a lower cost to society.
