The Government of Ontario under the Energy Competition Act 1998 caused the deregulation of the electrical industry and the structure of your local utility was altered.
Looking positively to the future, the former Grimsby Hydro-Electric Commission set up a transition committee consisting of Council and Commission members. This transition committee developed a plan and put it into place. It moved the former Grimsby Hydro-Electric Commission from traditional supply of electricity to our exciting new vision for the future of global data delivery.
To accomplish the plan, we were required to incorporate into several businesses under the Ontario Business Corporation Act no later than November 1, 2000. Grimsby Hydro-Electric Commission was dissolved and the assets transferred into the new corporations November 1, 2000. The name was changed, with our creation of a responsive series of corporations and divisions to better serve our customers.
