In an attempt to expand its “natural” gas infrastructure across Ontario, Enbridge Gas is telling residents that gas is the cheapest way to heat their homes.
It’s not. So, we’re calling them out.
We filed a complaint with the Competition Bureau after learning that Enbridge is falsely claiming that “natural” gas, better described as fossil gas, is the most cost-effective way for people to heat their homes and that it is a “clean energy” and “low carbon” option.
None of that is true.
For a long time, fossil gas was the cheapest way to heat homes. Key word: was.
But, that’s not the case anymore because of advances in electric heat pumps. Enbridge Gas' false advertising is causing real harm as people are faced with a rising cost of living. Customers that Enbridge is targeting in gas expansion areas stand to lose more than $10,000 if they choose gas over an electric heat pump.
Community members across Ontario are rallying to say #StopLyingEnbridge and #NoMoreGas.
