This project included the construction of approximately 22 kilometres of natural gas pipeline at a total cost of $2.7 million, made possible by:
- An expansion surcharge of $0.23 per cubic metre of natural gas used will apply to all customers who connect to the community expansion pipe until the end of the expansion surcharge term.
- For example if a residential home used 2,320 m3 of natural gas per year this charge would be $0.23 m3 x 2,320 m3 / 12 months = $44/month.
- The ES is typically higher in the winter months when the heating system is in use vs summer months.
- A municipal contribution of $12,300/year for 10 years, equivalent to the property taxes Enbridge Gas will pay annually on the new pipeline.
