Veridian Connections - Gravenhurst's Electricity Provider

In 2005 Veridian purchased Gravenhurst Hydro and made a commitment to the municipality to improve reliability, provide competitive rates and maintain a strong presence in the community.  Veridian celebrates over 10 years of service in Gravenhurst and they continue to deliver on these promises through:

  • Strengthening electrical infrastructure, expanding system automation and responding quickly to devastating storms with crews from other Veridian service territories.  You can view Veridian's outage map.
  • Harmonizing distribution rates for all of Veridian's service areas; an initiative that resulted in an average reduction of 15 per cent for Gravenhurst customers on the Veridian portion of the bill.  Learn more about Veridian's rates on their website.
  • Providing real-time outage information through an Integrated Voice Response System, Twitter feed and user-friendly online outage map.  Follow Veridian on Twitter.
  • Ensuring a forum for continued community feedback through the Gravenhurst Advisory Committee.  This Committee of Council serves as a liason body between Veridian and the Town for general electricity distribution issues.  You can learn more about the Veridian Advisory Committee.
