Mohawk Council of Akwesasne / Kawehno:ke

Bringing natural gas to your community

Enbridge Gas is proposing to bring natural gas to the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne / Kawehno:ke 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 46% each year on home and water heating costs.

Ontario Energy Board approval is required for this project to proceed. 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 Rate1 rates in effect as of Jan. 1, 2021 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, 2021 (Updated with June TOU). It includes the new Ontario Electricity Rebate (OER) and the COVID-19 Emergency pricing for 45 days and excludes distribution charges per First Nations Delivery Credit. 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 cents per cubic metre of natural gas used will apply to all customers who connect to the community expansion pipe until the end of the 40 year term.

    For example if a residential home used 500 m3 of natural gas per month this charge would be $0.23m3 x 500m3 = $115/month

    The SES is typically higher in the winter months when the heating system is in use vs summer months.

  • A contribution from the municipality or Indigenous community served.
