74.1.1. The Government may, to allow supply contracts to be entered into with suppliers connected to a Native community, exempt an electric power distributor from soliciting tenders for
(1) contracts for an energy block the Government determines, without exceeding 150 MW; and
(2) contracts related to the supply necessary for the integration of any energy block to which subparagraph 1 or 2.1 of the first paragraph of section 112 applies.
When it grants an exemption, the Government may, in accordance with Québec’s intergovernmental and international trade commitments, determine the terms, the suppliers and the quantity of electric power required under each supply contract, as well as the maximum price, for the purpose of establishing the cost of electric power under section 52.2 or for the purposes of the supply plan provided for in section 72.
