Bringing natural gas to your community
We are expanding natural gas to your area in the Kenora District – Highway 594 in Dryden. Depending on the existing fuel source, households can save up to 48% each year on home and water heating by switching to natural gas.
Every business has its own unique energy needs, for a personalized estimate on how much you can save by switching to natural gas email at email@example.com and we will let you know!

This project includes the construction of approximately 2.4 km of natural gas pipeline, for a total an estimated cost of approximately $956,000, made possible by:
- A $1/ month contribution from new and existing natural gas utility customers in Ontario, which was implemented on July 1, 2019.
- An expansion surcharge of $0.23 cents per cubic metre of natural gas used will apply to all customers who connect to the community expansion pipe until the end of the 40 year term.
- For example if a residential home used 2320 m3 of natural gas per year this charge would be $0.23m3 x 2320m3 / 12 months = $44/month.
- The ES is typically higher in the winter months when the heating system is in use vs summer months.
