Guelph is a city in southwestern Ontario, Canada. Known as "The Royal City", Guelph is roughly 28 kilometres east of Kitchener and 100 kilometres west of Downtown Toronto, at the intersection of Highway 6, Highway 7 and Wellington County Road 124 /CBC

A Guelph councilor’s motion for the city to become 100 percent renewable by 2050 was met with unanimous support at the committee of the whole meeting.

Coun. Leanne Piper presented a motion to the city council committee to have the municipal government, and all of the buildings it owns, become renewable within the next three decades.

It was met with unanimous support — 13 to 0.

“It’s 32 years out, but it’s still a very ambitious goal,” said manager of the climate change office, Alex Chapman.

Chapman said the motion to become 100 percent renewable is “one step beyond” the net zero carbon goal for the community, as it would only apply to the municipal government itself, and not the entire municipality.
