Community Energy Initiative

A commitment to use energy more wisely and fight climate change

The Community Energy Initiative (formerly Community Energy Plan – CEP) is Guelph’s commitment to use and manage energy differently, better, than we have in the past. The initiative will also attract quality investment to the city. After all, experts agree that a reliable, sustainable energy supply is and will continue to be a key ingredient in the long-term competitiveness and prosperity of cities.

The main goal of the CEI is that Guelph will become a Net Zero Carbon community by 2050.

Council has set a further goal that City corporate operations will be powered by 100% renewable energy by 2050.

Our Energy Guelph, a community social enterprise, will be the City’s partner in implementing the CEI.
