Hydro-Quebec: Upgrade Fridge Offer (QC Only)...

Expiry:
December 31, 2015
Hi there,

For those who has a old fridge (14 years and over), in working order and within the low-income bracket, there is a program by Hydro-Quebec to upgrade to a new more efficient fridge for $75 to $120 (depending on size).

There are tons of conditions though...

So if you live alone you need to make less than 19k a year?
What a joke. No one who makes 19k a year can afford a new $1000+ fridge, even with $120 off.

It's not 120$ off... it's FOR 120$

It's a great program for those who can't afford a new energy efficient fridge, they end up saving money on their electricity bill. When you're eligible for such program, you need those dollars you can save. One of my older employee working part time benefited from the program two or three years ago, she was able to get a brand new fridge for 70$ or 75$ if I recall correctly.

It's for people on welfare or something 37000 for 4 persons in house.. you have to be unemployed to be under that. Both tenants working at minimum wage is over that..
Paying full price for an item is a sin. :twisted:

If I understand they look for the household income from the last year? Might work for me.

The southern border of Westmount is the north side of St-Antoine street which is across from St-Henri. Plus the area south of Dorchester (Réne-Levesque in Montreal) is called Westmount Ghetto.

"Ghetto"

Those areas are pretty gentrified

It is considered the ghetto of Westmount (house prices across the board are lower than the rest of the Westmount). I never said it was an actual ghetto.

PS Just because someone lives in Westmount does not mean they are loaded, which seems to be what people are suggesting here.

I'm merely suggesting that the odds of the family income of anyone living in Westmount being less that $19k is highly unlikely. That's what I'm suggesting, we're a little way off from the implication of being "loaded".

I agree with you that it is unlikely, but not impossible.

Have you seen the places on St-Antoine street? Not to speak of all the bachelor's and studios for rent in Lower Westmount or the low rental units south of Ste-Catherine's (near Westmount High).

If it's anything like the econologis program, don't bother. The guys did a botched job and our front door couldn't close for months before they fixed it and we are still waiting for the new thermostats (had the visit in oct).

Have you seen the prices lately . A 3 unit building I looked at 10 years ago for 100k is now worth 500k. Mind you it`s still 1/4 the price of Toronto.
