Bringing natural gas to your community
We are bringing natural gas to the Cornwall Island community. Depending on the existing fuel source, households can save up to 52% each year on home and water heating by switching to natural gas. 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 27% 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 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!
*Annual cost and savings estimates are based on July 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 June 2019. Hydro prices are based on Hydro One (Med Density – R1) distribution rates effective July 1, 2018 and include the First Nations Delivery Credit. Propane prices are based on EDPRO Energy Group Inc. rates as of July 11, 2019. GST/HST is not included in any cost calculations.
