Saint-Jean-Baptiste Natural Gas Rates
Like everywhelse in Québec, Saint-Jean-Baptiste has a deregulated natural gas market, meaning that people there have the freedom to select their natural gas supplier.

Coopérative Régionale d’électricité de Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Rouville
Coopérative Régionale d’électricité de Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Rouville was created in 1944, when the Québec Premier at that time, Adélard Godbout, enabled 46 local communities to create their own electricity cooperatives and bring power to remote areas in Québec — and the Coopérative Régionale d’électricité de Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Rouville was one of them.
Most of the coops created in the 1940s no longer exist, as they were bought by Hydro-Québec in the 1960s. The Coopérative Régionale d’électricité de Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Rouville is the only company of that type left in Québec.
Alongside being the electricity distributor in the areas it serves, the coop also has the exclusive rights to sell electricity in such regions. Check below some of the municipalities served by the Coopérative Régionale d’électricité de Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Rouville:
