Union Gas starts construction pipeline project in Perth East

Published 07 September 2017

Representatives from Union Gas and the Township of Perth East gathered to celebrate the beginning of construction of a $5M pipeline project that will soon deliver affordable energy to local residents and businesses in Milverton, Rostock and Wartburg.

"Union Gas is looking forward to delivering affordable energy to residents in Milverton, Wartburg and Rostock in 2017-2018," said Steve Jelich, Union Gas district manager. "Extending service to customers in Perth East would not have been possible without the support of members of the community and Council."

There are plenty of reasons to make the switch to natural gas. Residents who heat their home and water with natural gas can save up to $1,500 on average every year, compared to using electricity, oil or propane. And with massive supplies in North America, the price of natural gas will remain low for years to come. In addition, with a constant supply and unparalleled reliability, the natural gas system is available year-round with no fill-ups needed, even in the harshest winter months.

"The availability of affordable natural gas presents an opportunity to significantly reduce energy costs for local citizens and businesses and drive economic development and job creation," saidBob McMillan, Mayor, Township of Perth East.

"Union Gas has been delivering affordable natural gas to homes and businesses throughoutOntario safely and reliably for more than a century and we will be applying all that experience to this project," added Jelich. "Union Gas will also use as many local resources as practical to build the pipeline and where possible will procure materials from the local community."

This project represents the first wave of a multi-year expansion effort to provide natural gas service to more communities throughout the province.
