Questions and Comments

Question / Comment:

I urge Council to maintain full ownership. The climate change crisis is upon us. Cities need to shift to renewable energy. Public ownership makes the switch to renewables easier.

Response:

Guelph Hydro and Alectra are committed to supporting renewable energy and conservation programs.

A merger with Alectra would include the development of a new Green Energy & Technology Centre; a place where people would collaborate on innovative energy solutions to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

A merger with Alectra would mean Guelph would share ownership with several municipalities; no one shareholder would own more than 50% of the company, and the utility would still be publicly-owned.
