Delaware Nation
at Moraviantown

Bringing natural gas to your community in 2018

Union Gas is working to bring natural gas to the Delaware Nation at Moraviantown. By switching to natural gas, households can save up to 50%* each year on home and water heating. Local businesses could see up to a 30%* reduction in their annual energy costs for 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!

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 $650* each year on home and water heating.

Construction on the natural gas system to serve Moraviantown began the week of June 25. Please remember to drive safely if you encounter installation crews. For questions or comments, please email savewithgas@uniongas.com.

*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 project includes the construction of 7.4 kilometres of natural gas pipeline at a total cost of $564,000, 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 40 years. Including this added charge, switching to natural gas will save you up to $1,500* per year for home and water heating, or up to $650* for on-reserve households.
  • A community contribution of $5,000 per year for 10 years, equivalent to the property taxes Union Gas will pay on the new pipeline.
  • Securing a grant from the province’s Natural Gas Grant Program or aid from another party. A grant application has been filed with the province.
