Bringing natural gas to your community
We are bringing natural gas to the Hiawatha community. Depending on the existing fuel source, households can save up to 48% 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 18% 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 summer 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 start saving!
