The energy needs and service expectations within our community and across Ontario continue to evolve and grow at a rapid pace.

The decision by municipal shareholders to explore the possibility of merging two electric utilities is driven by some key factors including:

  • Experience from other utility mergers in Ontario has demonstrated that consolidation of electric utilities has resulted in positive outcomes for the customers, the communities, the shareholders and the employees;
  • The Ontario government’s ongoing attention on local distribution companies (LDCs) finding efficiencies through consolidation, and,
  • Ontario electric utilities are rapidly changing, introducing technological advancements in response to customer wants and needs. A merger is a pathway for utilities to move forward with new technologies.
