Bringing natural gas to your community

**NEW PHASE 2 ANNOUNCED!** More streets are now being serviced by Union Gas. Check out the updated map below to see if your street is included, then click the ‘sign up’ tab below to get the process started!


Important: Union Gas will be connecting new customers in the coming days and weeks. Please factor this into your decision making if you still have your old fuel source hooked up and are currently making a decision about topping it up in advance of colder weather. Deciding on the correct amount will help minimize any wasted or unused fuel, and you can convert and save with affordable natural gas sooner.

Natural gas is flowing in the Ipperwash Beach community of Lambton Shores and homeowners can switch and begin saving up to $1,200* a year on home space and water heating.

If you want to switch to natural gas, here are some important timelines to keep in mind: between October 31 and March 31, we will do our best to meet our standard timelines to connect you, but we will be adding two weeks to the installation date to account for winter conditions. Regardless of when you want to connect, Union Gas must have your new customer account created and a completed application from your heating contractor (HVAC) to guarantee service. To avoid delays in starting to save, we encourage you to work with your heating contractor to act as quickly as possible!

Switching to natural gas is easy and households can save up to 50%* each year on home space and water heating. Local businesses could see up to a 30%* reduction in their annual energy costs for space and water heating. For a personalized estimate on how much you can save by switching to natural gas email savewithgas@uniongas.com and we will let you know!

*Annual cost and saving estimates are based on January 2017 or January 2018 fuel rates for a four-person home using 2,200 or 2,350 cubic meters (m3) of natural gas a year, depending on community, for space and water heating. Estimates include a surcharge of $0.23/m3 (see project pages for specific details) for pipeline construction costs. Estimates also include the provincial government’s Fair Hydro Plan reduction for electricity.

About the project

This pipeline serves Lambton Shores and the Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation.

  • This project includes the construction of over 20 kilometres of natural gas pipeline at a total cost of $2.1 million, made possible by an additional charge on customers’ natural gas bills of 23 cents for every cubic metre of natural gas used for up to 12 years.
  • Including this added charge, switching to natural gas will save you up to $1,500* per year for home and water heating
