Natural gas is coming to more communities across Ontario!

Access to reliable, affordable natural gas lowers energy bills for families, creates new opportunities for municipalities and helps Ontario businesses become more competitive, grow and create jobs. Households can save up to 54%* each year on home and water heating depending on their existing fuel source when making the switch.

We have connected multiple communities and continue to connect communities to reliable, affordable natural gas. Extending natural gas service to more communities costs more than the revenue it will generate. Because of this, the province have provided regulations under Bill 32 – the Access to Natural Gas Act. This enables the partial funding of new natural gas community expansion projects through a monthly subsidy collected from existing natural gas ratepayers and through a surcharge from new customers served by the projects.

We’re working in many project areas across Ontario as we prepare for future natural gas community expansion project, as part of the Ontario Government’s Natural gas Expansion Program. Area residents may see our crews completing soil sampling, land surveying, test digs and holding field meetings, which are all activities that help inform our project routes and timelines for construction. While this pre-work is ongoing, you may occasionally notice equipment in operation, and some noise; we apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

Each project comes with its own complexities, regulatory requirements, permits, and consultation timelines, which are all factors in determining a project's start time and specific pipe location – and we are working through those conditions and requirements now, and are not in a position to share finalized project routes at this time.

This work is being conducted by Enbridge Gas employees, or contractors working on our behalf. All employees and contractors carry identification at all times.

Your Community Not Listed? Natural Gas is Coming to More Communities Across Ontario!

On June 9, 2021, the Ontario Government announced that 27 Enbridge Gas projects have been selected to receive funding through the Natural Gas Expansion Program. We are thrilled to expand natural gas access and bring affordable energy to these areas of Ontario:

Bobcaygeon, Boblo Island, Burk’s Falls, Caledon (Humber Station), Cedar Springs, Chute-á-Blondeau, East Gwillimbury (North and East), Eganville, Glendale Subdivision, Grimsby-Lincoln (Economic Development), Haldimand Shores, Hamilton Airport Regional Expansion (economic development), Hidden Valley (Huntsville), Kenora District (highway 594), Lanark and Balderson, Merrickville-Wolford, Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte First Nation, Neustadt, Perth East (Brunner), Prince Edward County (Cherry Valley), Red Rock First Nation (Lake Helen Reserve), Sandford, Selwyn, Severn (Washago), St. Charles, Stanley’s Old Maple Farm, and Tweed. This will give an estimated 8,200 new residential and commercial customers access to natural gas through approximately 430 kilometres of new distribution pipelines.

Access to reliable, affordable natural gas lowers energy bills for families, creates new opportunities for municipalities and helps Ontario businesses become more competitive, grow and create jobs. Households can save up 54%* each year on home and water heating depending on their existing fuel choice when making the switch. Businesses can see a reduction in their annual energy costs for space and/or water heating, cooking, and any process loads after making the switch to natural gas. A customer/property-specific consultation by an Enbridge Community Expansion Advisor is recommended. Please contact us at savewithgas@enbridge.com.

It takes significant investment to build the infrastructure required to bring natural gas to the many communities, neighborhoods, and individuals that request natural gas service each year. Because of this, the province introduced regulations under Bill 32 – the Access to Natural Gas Act. This enables the partial funding of new natural gas community expansion projects through a monthly subsidy collected from existing natural gas ratepayers and through a surcharge from new customers served by the projects.
