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 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.

Ontario Energy Board review and approval is required before the project can proceed. Once approved, construction would 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:

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.

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.
