Bringing natural gas to your community
Natural gas is now flowing! 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 45%* 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 email@example.com and we will let you know!
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.
Local businesses could see up to a 30%* reduction in their annual energy costs for space and water heating.

*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.
