    Nadia Mbenga Molima v. Hydro-Québec

    Hydro-Québec’s Overcharges

    The case

    This class action seeks to compensate Hydro-Québec customers for overcharges billed between 2008 and 2013.  During this period, Hydro-Quebec voluntarily overestimated the costs forecasts and underestimated the revenues forecasts submitted to the Régie de l’énergie.

    This generated earnings variances that systematically exceeded the authorized returns. These overcharges resulted in electricity costs that were higher than they should have been. The plaintiff is therefore seeking compensation from Hydro-Québec equivalent to the value of the overcharges for the years 2008 to 2013, amounting to over $1.2 billion.

    – You received and paid bills for your electricity consumption during this period

    The procedures

    On December 11, 2019, Justice Duprat of the Superior Court authorized the institution of the class action.

    Hydro-Québec sought leave to appeal this judgment, which was denied on February 28, 2020. The Supreme Court then refused to hear Hydro-Québec’s appeal.

    The Originating Application (French only) was filed on June 18, 2021.
