In April 2007, Guelph City Council unanimously endorsed the vision, goals and general directions of a 25-year Community Energy Plan (CEP) that will put Guelph on the cutting edge for North America.

Under the plan’s challenging but realistic targets, Guelph could use less energy in 25 years than it does today – even with expected residential growth of 65,000 people – and cut its annual emissions by nine tonnes per person. This will put Guelph among the top energy performers in the world, and make this one of the most competitive and attractive communities in which to invest.

The Community Energy Plan was developed by a Consortium that included the City; Union Gas; Guelph Hydro; business and industry representatives; the University of Guelph; school boards; and Chamber of Commerce, with the assistance of international energy expert Peter Garforth.

Cross-departmental teams of City staff are working with Guelph Hydro and other partners and stakeholders to implement the directions in the plan. They will provide regular reports on their progress to Council and partner agencies.
