Electric Vehicles

Guelph Hydro believes that the adoption of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) and electric vehicles (EV) will play a large role in helping the community of Guelph reach its greenhouse gas targets.

As the key implementer of projects under the Community Energy Plan, Guelph Hydro has an important role to play acting as a catalyst and encouraging the community to explore electric vehicle technology.

As a first step, Guelph Hydro conducted an Electric Vehicle Market Research Study in February 2011.

Next, the company added a hybrid car, a hybrid bucket truck and one fully electric van to its fleet of service vehicles.

In the winter of 2012, Guelph Hydro installed an electric vehicle charging station at Stone Road Mall in Guelph.
