5 INTRODUCTION Every year, Hydro-Québec compares the monthly electricity bills of Québec customers in the residential, commercial, institutional and industrial sectors with those of customers of the various utilities serving 21 major North American cities. This report details the principal conclusions of this comparative analysis of prices in effect on April 1, There are three sections. The first describes the method used to estimate electricity bills. The second examines the highlights of the seven consumption levels analyzed, with the help of charts. Finally, the third section presents the results of the 21 consumption levels for which data were collected and compiled in the form of summary and detailed tables. The most recent rate adjustments, time-of-use rates, adjustment clauses and applicable taxes, as well as a profile of the utilities in the study, appear in separate appendices. 3

9 METHOD In addition to Hydro-Québec, this comparative analysis of electricity prices across North America includes 22 utilities: 12 serving the principal cities in the nine other Canadian provinces, and 10 utilities in American states. The results are based, in part, on a survey to which 14 utilities responded, and in part on estimates of bills calculated by Hydro-Québec and confirmed in most cases by the utilities concerned. The results presented here show the total bill for various consumption levels. If the bill is calculated according to an unbundled rate, it includes all components, including supply, transmission and distribution. GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION Electricity distributors sometimes offer different rates in the various cities they serve. As well, taxes may vary from one region to another. This, however, is not the case in Québec, where, with the exception of territories north of the 53 rd parallel, taxes and rates are applied uniformly. For the purposes of this study, the bill calculations estimate as closely as possible the actual electricity bills of consumers in each target city, based on rates in effect on April 1, TIME-OF-USE RATES PERIOD COVERED Monthly bills have been calculated based on rates in effect on April 1, The most recent rate adjustments applied by the utilities in the study between April 1, 2013, and April 1, 2014, are shown in Appendix A. CONSUMPTION LEVELS Seven consumption levels were selected for analysis. However, data were collected for 21 consumption levels and those results are presented in the Detailed Tables. TAXES With the exception of the bills presented in Section 2, taxes are not included in any of the calculations. Appendix C lists taxes applicable on April 1, 2014, by customer category; those which may be partially or fully refundable are also indicated. The rates offered by some utilities vary depending on the season and/or time of day when energy is consumed. In the United States, for example, a number of utilities set a higher price in summer, when demand for air-conditioning is stronger. In Québec, on the other hand, demand increases in winter because of heating requirements. Thus, for some utilities, April 1 may fall within a period in the year when the price is high, whereas for others it falls in a period when the price is low. An annual average price has therefore been calculated in the case of utilities with time-of-use rates which are listed in Appendix B. ADJUSTMENT CLAUSES The rates of some distributors include adjustment clauses that allow them to adjust their customers electricity bills according to changes in different variables. Since these adjustments may be applied monthly, or over a longer period, the electricity bills issued by a given distributor may have varied between April 1, 2013, and April 1, 2014, even though base rates remained the same. Appendix B lists the adjustment clauses taken into account when calculating bills. OPTIONAL PROGRAMS The bills have been calculated according to base rates. Optional rates or programs offered by some utilities to their residential, commercial, institutional or industrial customers have not been taken into account since the terms and conditions vary considerably from one utility to the next. EXCHANGE RATE The exchange rate used to convert bills in U.S. dollars into Canadian dollars is $ (C A $ 1 = U S $ ), the rate in effect at noon on April 1, The Canadian dollar had thus depreciated by 7.8 % relative to the U.S. dollar since April 1,

11 HIGHLIGHTS The Distribution Tariff Effective April 1, 2014 sets out Hydro-Québec s rates, as approved by the Régie de l énergie (the Québec energy board) in accordance with Decision D Three types of rates are in effect: domestic rates for residential customers, industrial rates for large-power industrial customers and general rates for other customers. General rates are applied according to minimum billing demand: small power, medium power and large power. For comparison purposes, the electricity bills of the utilities in the study have been analyzed according to these customer categories. The industrial rate has been used to calculate the bills of large-power customers. RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMERS The rate applicable to Hydro-Québec s residential customers is among the most advantageous in North America. For customers whose monthly consumption is 1,000 k W h, Montréal is once again in first place. Figure 1 illustrates the results of this comparison.

12 SMALL-POWER CUSTOMERS (LESS THAN 100 K W) The comparison of bills for small-power customers is based on a monthly consumption of 10,000 k W h and a power demand of 40 k W. Montréal is in third place, as was the case last year. Figure 2 shows the comparative index of electricity prices. FIGURE 2 Winnipeg, MB Seattle, WA Montréal, QC Vancouver, BC Chicago, IL Calgary, AB Houston, TX Edmonton, AB Portland, OR Miami, FL St. John s, NL Regina, SK Moncton, NB Toronto, ON Detroit, MI Nashville, TN Ottawa, ON Halifax, NS Charlottetown, PE San Francisco, CA Boston, MA New York, NY Comparative Index of Electricity Prices Small-Power Customers Consumption: 10,000 kwh/month Power demand: 40 kw Hydro-Québec = 100 Monthly bill (excluding tax) Rates in effect April 1,

13 MEDIUM-POWER CUSTOMERS (100 TO 5,000 K W) Three consumption levels were analyzed for medium-power customers. In all three cases, the bills of Hydro-Québec s customers have remained below the average in the other major North American cities. Figures 3, 4 and 5 show the comparative index of electricity prices for these consumption profiles. For medium-power customers with a monthly consumption of 100,000 k W h and a power demand of 500 k W, Montréal holds sixth place, compared to eighth place last year.

14 For customers with a monthly consumption of 400,000 k W h and a power demand of 1,000 k W, Montréal is in third place.

15 In the case of customers with a monthly consumption of 1,170,000 k W h and a power demand of 2,500 k W, Montréal ranks second. FIGURE 5 Winnipeg, MB Montréal, QC Seattle, WA Vancouver, BC Portland, OR Calgary, AB Miami, FL Regina, SK St. John s, NL Houston, TX Detroit, MI Edmonton, AB Chicago, IL Moncton, NB Nashville, TN Halifax, NS San Francisco, CA Toronto, ON Charlottetown, PE Ottawa, ON Boston, MA New York, NY 77 Comparative Index of Electricity Prices Medium-Power Customers Consumption: 1,170,000 kwh/month Power demand: 2,500 kw Voltage: 25 kv Hydro-Québec = 100 Monthly bill (excluding tax) Rates in effect April 1,

16 LARGE-POWER CUSTOMERS (5,000 K W OR MORE) Figure 6 illustrates the comparative index of electricity prices for large-power customers with a monthly consumption of 3,060,000 k W h and a power demand of 5,000 k W. Montréal is in second place.
