Enbridge pipeline will bring fracked gas to the GTAEnbridge Gas Distribution is seeking permission from the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) to build a $623.7 million natural gas pipeline in the Greater Toronto Area. This pipeline will bring gas developed through fracking — the injection of water, sand and chemicals into rock — in areas like Pennsylvania and New York. But there is a better answer: By investing half as much in energy conservation and efficiency — including gas alternatives like geothermal and solar water heating — Enbridge could save its customers $1.4 billion per year while cutting dangerous greenhouse gas emissions and making its pipeline system safer by lowering pressure during peak periods.
