Cornwall Island

Bringing natural gas to your community

Enbridge Gas is proposing to bring natural gas to the Cornwall Island community.

Households that qualify for Ontario's First Nations On-Reserve Delivery Credit have delivery charges for electricity removed from their hydro bills. By switching to natural gas, these households could see savings of 16-51% each year on home and water heating costs.

Ontario Energy Board approval is required for this project to proceed. Once approved, construction could begin as early as fall 2021. The proposed pipeline routing below is subject to change during the design and execution phases of the project. Check back often for the latest information about the project and when you can start saving!

*Natural gas prices are based on Rate 1 rates in effect as of April 1, 2020 and includes the $0.23 per m3 system expansion surcharge. Oil and propane prices are based on the latest available retail prices. Electricity rates based Hydro One Distribution rates (Mid-density R1) as of Jan 1, 2020 and includes the new Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) and the COVID-19 Emergency pricing for 45 days. Costs have been calculated for the equivalent energy consumed and include all service, delivery and energy charges. Carbon price is included for all energy types as reported. HST is not included.

About the project

This project includes the construction of approximately 21 km of natural gas pipeline, and a station to total an estimated cost of $8 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.
