Learn more about Enbridge in Wisconsin.
Enbridge delivers the energy needed to get Wisconsinites where they’re going.
Since 1949, Enbridge has proudly served the state of Wisconsin. Our commitment to safety and community is at the forefront of everything we do and is rooted in the culture of our more than 12,000 employees and contractors across the U.S. and Canada.
Since establishing operations in Wisconsin in 1949, Enbridge has been committed to safely delivering the energy that fuels our lives. Enbridge helps Wisconsin to meet 100 percent of its refinery capacity needs and 70 percent of Midwest refinery capacity needs through the transportation of oil and natural gas liquids to refineries in the Great Lakes region. This fuel is used locally and regionally every day—to fuel vehicles, heat homes, power manufacturing and grow local economies.
Enbridge's ongoing operations continue to stimulate local and regional economies. Through procurement spending, we're helping to create indirect employment, support local businesses and establish economic spinoffs. In 2018, our capital expenditures in Wisconsin (including equipment purchases and replacement, capital leases and pipe steel) exceeded $328 million, while our operating administrative expenditures in Wisconsin (including power consumption, equipment leases and maintenance costs) exceeded $157 million.
Enbridge's presence in the community fuels quality of life through ongoing tax revenue. In 2018, we paid more than $42 million in property, sales-and-use and corporate income tax; these dollars can be used for important services that help stsrengthen community fabric.
Additionally, our Community Investment and Safe Community grant programs assist the financial and supply needs of community organizations, schools, safety professionals, and other groups that work within the communities in which we operate.
With about 280 employees and contractors in 19 offices across the state dedicated to the safe and reliable transportation of the energy, Enbridge operations in Wisconsin represent a vital link between energy supply and the nation’s energy security along with economic vitality for the state and for the region.
Since 1949, Enbridge’s employees and contractors have lived and worked in communities throughout Wisconsin as colleagues, neighbors, and friends.
