What's the average electricity bill in Guelph? What portion of the bill will be affected by this process?


An average residential monthly bill is $147.79 for 750 kilowatt hours of electricity. Guelph Hydro keeps 20 per cent ($29.56) to cover the cost of distributing electricity here in our community.This part of the bill could be affected by changing the ownership structure of Guelph Hydro.

Most of the bill ($118.23) 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 them.

All electricity rates and fees are governed by the Ontario Energy Board
