Question / Comment:

I'm not seeing the gleaming benefits of a merger. Guelph Hydro operates optimally now, caters to the public, and exceeds most industry standards. They already cultivate green technology with the MicroGRID, etc.

Response:

Yes. Guelph Hydro has a great track record, and Alectra is focused on innovation too. Joining forces would allow us to collaborate with other cities working on innovative energy projects including MicroGrid, solar power, and storage, NetZero, Smart EV charging stations and more.

For Guelph Hydro customers, a merger would help keep rates lower than they would be if we maintained ownership of Guelph Hydro.

The City would receive a higher annual dividend to invest in local infrastructure, programs, and services.

Compare both options
