Chippewas of the
Thames First Nation

Bringing natural gas to your community

We are bringing natural gas to Chippewas of the Thames First Nation. By switching to natural gas, households can save up to 62%* each year on home and water heating. Local businesses can also see a reduction in their energy costs by switching to natural gas. For a personalized estimate on how much you can save, email savewithgas@enbridge.com and we will let you know!

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. To avoid delays in starting to save, we encourage you to work with your heating contractor to act as quickly as possible. To sign up, click on the Sign Up button.

Ontario Energy Board has approved the project to proceed and construction will begin as early as Fall 2019.

*Annual cost and savings estimates are based on April 2019 fuel rates for an average residential home using 2,200 cubic metres of natural gas for home and water heating a year. Estimates include the natural gas monthly charge and a surcharge of $0.23/m3 for pipeline construction costs. Heating oil prices are based on the latest available Toronto retail prices as of April 2019.

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 of $0.23 cents per cubic metre of natural gas used over a term of 40 years, to be paid by new customers in the communities served by the expansion projects.
  • A contribution from the municipality or Indigenous community served.
