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 ceapplications@enbridge.com and we will let you know!

Ontario Energy Board review and approval is required before the project can proceed. The proposed pipeline routing below is subject to change during the design and execution phases of the project. Check back often for the latest information about the project and start saving!

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.
