Is Quebec at the limits of its generation capacity or just it's transmission infrastructure?


I suppose using electricity for home heating has its downside besides the obvious cost in most areas? I know a few Nova Scotians that do it but not many.

We switched our Condo building (50 units mostly 2 bdrm and a den) to Nat gas a few years ago. Initially we were told we would break even on the switching cost in two years but our timing was good and we did it in 14 months due to the fall in gas prices. This year we had to raise condo fees for the first time in five years by a paltry $8 a month. I'm not expecting that to last but certainly not complaining while it does.
