How many people will the Green Energy & Technology Centre employ? For how long?

Bigger isn't always better. Service could become less personal or less reliable.
I would prefer to have Guelph Hydro remain local so that we have more control over decisions made on our behalf. I am leery of large mergers.
How come Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Centre Wellington, Milton, and others aren't scrambling to do something?
After more than a year of conducting industry research, completing a comprehensive financial analysis, and collecting community input Guelph City Council has approved the merger between Guelph Hydro and Alectra. The merger offers several benefits for customers and the community in terms of better rates, community planning and investment, continued reliable service, and a new Green Energy & Technology Centre.
As a final regulatory measure to ensure these benefits are fulfilled, the Guelph Hydro-Alectra merger will be evaluated by the Ontario Energy Board over the course of 2018.
