Step 3: Terms and Conditions for Natural Gas Service
Natural gas service installation policy
Enbridge Gas will provide and install at no cost, one service line per civic address to new customers provided that:
The distance between the Owner’s property line and the front wall of house/building is 20 metres or less; and
The distance between the front wall of house/building and the selected meter location is 2 metres or less.
Service and meter installation in excess of these distances will result in additional charges of $32 per metre (plus applicable taxes)*. Call your local heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) provider for an assessment and to submit an application for gas service.
Enbridge Gas will assess where your HVAC provider has requested the meter and determine where the service can be installed.
Expansion Surcharge—what to expect
It takes significant investment to build the infrastructure to bring natural gas to your community. The Expansion Surcharge provides lower upfront costs to customers by spreading them out over time**.
On average, most homes will pay a Expansion Surcharge of about $550 per year ($0.23 per cubic metre). The Expansion Surcharge is based on the home’s consumption and will fluctuate based on the gas consumed.
The cancellation policy
If your natural gas account is not activated within one year of installation of your new natural gas service, you’ll be required to pay Enbridge Gas’ installation costs of $2,500.
*There may be additional costs for extreme construction conditions such as a river crossing; full bedrock; private easement; crossing a six-lane highway.
**First Nation communities are exempt from HST. ***Two surcharges (System Expansion Surcharge or SES, and Temporary Connection Surcharge or TCS) are referenced in the Enbridge Gas Rate Handbook for the EGD rate zone and the rate schedules for the Union rate zones, both at $0.23/m3. The SES is applicable to projects with 50 or more potential customers and the TCS is applicable to projects with less than 50 potential customers. Enbridge Gas’s reporting obligations to the OEB depends upon the type of project. Because the customer conditions for these surcharges are the same, Enbridge Gas refers to them both as an Expansion Surcharge.
