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 49%* 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.

Good things happen when you take smart steps to save. By following just a few of the energy-saving tips we’ve gathered, you’ll see how easy it is to trim energy costs.

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 50%* each year on home and water heating depending on their existing fuel choice when making the switch. Businesses can see a reduction of up to 30% 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.
