Bringing natural gas to your community

Natural gas is flowing in Prince Township and homeowners can switch and begin saving up to $1,000* a year on space and water heating. Sign up now to start saving by this winter!

If you want to switch to natural gas, here are some important timelines to keep in mind: all gas service applications must be received by Union Gas no later than September 30 in order to facilitate gas service installation by the end of the calendar year. Any applications for gas service received after this deadline will be scheduled for installation after May 1 (approximately), but may not be installed until after June 30. If the schedule allows, an earlier installation may occur. 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!

By switching to natural gas, households can save up to $1,000* each year on space and water heating. Local businesses could see up to a 20%* 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!

Thanks so much to residents and businesses for your patience as we conclude this construction and clean-up work. If you have any questions or concerns, please email savewithgas@uniongas.com and we'll get back to you.

*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 22 kilometres of natural gas pipeline at a total cost of $2.7 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 22 years. Including this added charge, switching to natural gas will save you up to $1,500 per year for home and water heating*.
  • A municipal contribution of $12,300/year for 10 years, equivalent to the property taxes Union Gas will pay annually on the new pipeline.
