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 email@example.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.
Sign up to switch to natural gas by October 31, 2019 and you can take advantage of the first 50 metres of natural gas pipeline at no charge incentive (see below) and ensure you receive gas service installation by the end of the year.
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.
Check back often for the latest information about the project and start saving as early as Fall 2019.

New community expansion customer incentive:
For customers who sign up for natural gas service during the time our pipeline system is under construction in a community, Enbridge Gas will install the first 50 metres of the natural gas service pipeline (between the property line and the gas meter), at no charge. If the length of service pipeline needed is longer than 50 metres, each additional meter will be charged at a rate of $80*. Call your local heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) provider to receive an assessment and submit an application for gas service before Oct. 31, 2019.
*There may be additional costs for extreme construction conditions such as a river crossing; full bedrock; private easement; crossing a six-lane highway.
*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. Hydro prices are based on Hydro One (Med Density – R1) distribution rates effective May 1, 2018 and include the First Nations Delivery Credit. Propane prices are based on EDPRO Energy Group Inc. rates as of June 5, 2019. GST/HST is not included in any cost calculations.
