Questions and Comments

Question / Comment:

Could a merger move us away from nuclear power?

Response:

Electricity generation is a separate conversation.

When you pay your Guelph Hydro bill, 80 percent of the money is used to pay electricity generators, transmitters, and provincial government agencies. These charges are related to the amount of electricity you use, and Guelph Hydro has limited control over that part of the bill.

Guelph Hydro keeps 20 percent of your payment to cover the cost of distributing electricity here in our community. Guelph Hydro manages these distribution charges carefully, and proposed changes to distribution charges must be approved by the Ontario Energy Board.
