Bringing natural gas to your community

Natural gas is flowing in Chippewas of the Thames First Nation. By switching to natural gas, households can save up to 56%* each year on home and water heating. Local businesses can also see a reduction in their energy costs by switching to natural gas.

Households that qualify for the province’s First Nations On-Reserve Delivery Credit have seen the delivery charges for electricity removed from their hydro bills. By switching to natural gas, these households will still save up to 19%* each year on home and water heating.

Regardless of when you want to connect, Enbridge Gas must have your new customer account created and a completed application from your heating contractor (HVAC) to guarantee service.

About the project

This project includes the construction of 6 kilometres of natural gas pipeline at a total cost of $1.9 million, made possible by:

  • A $1/ month contribution from new and existing natural gas utility customers in Ontario, which was implemented on July 1, 2019.
  • A system expansion surcharge 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 500 m3 of natural gas per month this charge would be $0.23m3 x 500m3 = $115/month

    The SES is typically higher in the winter months when the heating system is in use vs summer months.

  • A contribution from the municipality or Indigenous community served.
