Natural gas services will be expanded to serve 103 homes and businesses in Cedar Springs, a rural area bordering Burlington, and Milton.  The announcement was made by Milton MPP Parm Gill, and Energy Minister Todd Smith.
“Our government is making good on its promise to deliver affordable energy and expand natural gas pipelines to more communities, including ours in north Burlington,” Gill said.  A total of  approximately $2.5 million will be spent on the expansion, one of 28 projects that are part of phase two.
The investment is part of the second phase of the Ontario government’s Natural Gas Expansion program. “Access to natural  Gas will help more families and businesses find energy savings, while promoting economic development and job creation across our region, Gill said.  The province estimates households will save $250-1500/ month, while businesses could save up to 30%.
“We’re thrilled that through Ontario’s Natural Gas Expansion Program, Enbridge Gas will bring much needed and wanted natural gas in the most affordable way to communities across Ontario,” Enbridge Executive Vice President and President Gas Distribution& Storage, Cynthia Hansen said.  All 28 projects are expected to be underway by 2026.
