ENBRIDGE INC.—Enbridge will access Ontario’s Natural Gas Expansion Program to support 27 projects to expand natural gas access to Indigenous and rural communities across the province.

TORONTO—In collaboration with the Government of Ontario, Enbridge Inc. is expanding natural gas access to rural, northern and Indigenous communities across Ontario, using the province’s Natural Gas Expansion Program to support 27 projects.

The goal is to help to keep the cost of energy low for families, businesses and farmers, indicates a release, adding the average household could save up to 50 per cent in energy costs by switching to natural gas from costlier fuel sources and businesses could save up to 30 per cent on energy costs per year.

“We’re excited that Enbridge is bringing much-needed natural gas service to additional communities while supporting jobs and providing energy savings to residents and businesses,” said Cynthia Hansen, Enbridge executive vice-president and president of Enbridge Gas Distribution and Storage, in a statement. “We are pleased that the Government of Ontario selected these projects and look forward to working together with the province and local municipalities to continue to bring natural gas to more Ontario homes and businesses.”
