We are very proud of the service and value we get from Guelph Hydro, and we want to keep it that way in the years ahead. Mid-sized utilities across Ontario are looking for ways to address some big changes in the electricity industry:
- building and maintaining infrastructure to accommodate small-scale distributed generation, and a shift toward electric vehicles (charging stations etc.)
- changing the role of the utility as more people choose to generate their own power (reducing revenue for the utility)
- offering modern services for people seeking smart-home technologies to manage their own energy use
- contributing to long-term community planning, energy mapping, transportation planning, outage management systems etc
We’re doing our research now, to prepare for the future.
