FENELON FALLS, ONT. — The Ontario government is providing $12.3 million for a natural gas project to bring affordable heating to Fenelon Falls, Cameron and Cambray, Ont.
The project, led by Enbridge Gas Inc., will allow an estimated 1,370 households and 155 businesses access to natural gas in these communities. So far, 32 homes and one business have been connected.
According to a release issued by the Ministry of Infrastructure, depending on their current fuel source, households benefiting from the Fenelon Falls project will be able to save up to $1,050 per year on energy costs.
“Access to natural gas will make life more affordable for Fenelon Falls families and save local businesses money that they can use to hire new workers or invest in growing their business,” said MPP Laurie Scott in a statement.
“I’m excited about the potential for natural gas expansion to promote economic development here in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock and across rural Ontario.”
