Questions and Comments

Question / Comment:

I will assume any decision will match Guelph's Official Plan and advance attempts to deal with the risks associated with climate change. If not, I would expect some very serious consequences to follow.

Response:

You’re right. Utilities like Guelph Hydro are facing challenges when preparing for, and responding to, more frequent and severe storms. As we explore options we’re using several criteria related to climate change mitigation and adaptation such as:

  • Maintain or enhance service and systems through innovation and technology
  • Continue or enhance conservation and demand management programs
  • Encourage use and generation of electricity from renewable sources
  • Contribute capital funds for reinvestment
  • Support long-term community planning and economic development
