Have your say
We want to hear from you as we explore opportunities for Guelph Hydro.
What is most important to you?
Your electricity bill
Guelph Hydro uses 20 per cent of your electricity bill payment to distribute electricity to homes and businesses in our community. The rest of your electricity bill payment goes to generators, transmitters, regulators, government agencies and sales tax. All charges are governed by the Ontario Energy Board. Learn more about the charges on your bill.
Approving changes to electricity utilities in Ontario
Any plan to buy, sell or merge electricity utility assets must be approved by the Ontario Energy Board. A proposal must show it will not have an adverse effect on ratepayers based on the Board’s No Harm Test.
In addition to meeting the Board’s statutory requirements, we believe the following criteria will help us evaluate different options for Guelph Hydro.
We will continue treating Guelph Hydro employees with fairness and respect, and engage in open, honest communication with community and industry stakeholders.
