Question / Comment:

Will the decision on the future of Guelph Hydro help achieve the climate change and community energy objectives and policies in the City’s Official Plan?

Response:

To evaluate a potential transaction we must consider Ontario Energy Board requirements such as:

  • encourage conservation and demand management
  • contribute to the development of provincial smart-grid
  • encourage generation and use of renewable energy

We’re also considering Guelph-specific criteria:

  • advocate for local interests among regulators and other levels of government
  • contribute to long-term community planning and economic development
  • provide local jobs
  • contribute capital funds for reinvestment
