Cost of natural gas service

There are important factors to note when learning about the cost of natural gas service:

  • There will be no cost to connect to the natural gas distribution system, once it’s been constructed, provided that the natural gas meter that EPCOR installs is 30 metres or less from your property line. Customers who require more line to connect will be provided with an estimate for the additional line cost which, if approved, will be charged on their first bill.
  • As part of our Southern Bruce Conditions of Service, customers must start using gas within 12 months of the gas meter being installed at your property, which connects you to the distribution system, to avoid paying an inactive account fee.
  • There are costs to convert the appliances and piping in your property, which will vary depending on the requirements. We recommend speaking with one of our preferred HVAC contractors​ to get quotes specific to your home.
  • Natural gas rates are regulated and set by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB). It is expected that EPCOR’s current Southern Bruce rates​ will apply to new communities. Any rate adjustments specific to this project, if required, would be approved by the OEB as the project progresses.​​​

Project background

In June 2021, the Ontario Government announced additional funding for its Natural Gas Expansion Program. As part of Phase 2 of the Program, EPCOR has received funding to expand our Southern Bruce natural gas distribution system to more communities in the Municipalities of Kincardine and Arran-Elderslie, as well as to the Municipalities of Brockton and West Grey.
