–Al Monaco, President & CEO, Enbridge Inc.
We're committed to connecting people to the energy we all need to fuel our quality of life, and we do that in three key ways:
No one is better equipped to deliver energy than Enbridge. We operate the world’s largest and most sophisticated transportation network for crude oil and liquids; and we move approximately 20 percent of all natural gas consumed in the U.S. We take pride in delivering it all with an unrelenting focus on safety.
Our customers rely on the clean-burning natural gas we deliver to cook their food and heat their homes, water and workplaces. As owner and operator of Canada’s two largest natural gas distribution companies, we provide safe, reliable service to 3.5 million residential, commercial and industrial customers in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and New York State.
Our focus on the future of energy and sustainability has led us to become a major and growing renewable energy company. Since 2002, we've invested over $5 billion in wind, solar, geothermal, hydropower and waste-heat power generation assets. We also have a growing position in the European offshore wind generation market. Based on their gross generation capacity, our assets have the potential to supply more than one million homes with clean energy.
With the successful completion of our combination with Spectra Energy Corp (Spectra Energy) on February 27, 2017, Enbridge is now the largest energy infrastructure company in North America.
