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 13-45% 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!

*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.

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.
