Gas Service Line Installation

Gas Service Line Installation

When it comes to your business, you want to use the best materials and products available. When you add natural gas to your property, you’re adding the safe, economical, efficient, clean and reliable selection for your heating needs. It’s more affordable than other heating options and it’s better for the environment. But before a gas service line can be installed, the following guidelines must be met:

  • The foundation must be completed, and the selected meter site must be marked, backfilled to final grade and free of obstructions such as building materials, dirt piles and scaffolding.
  • The building must be piped before requesting a service line.
  • For existing buildings, the piping must be installed and/or proof of purchase of natural gas heating equipment must be provided.
  • Applicants must complete a certificate verifying compliance with minimum insulation standards.
  • All necessary permits must be obtained from the proper authorities prior to installation of a service line.

Typically, meters will be installed outside the property, opposite the driveway. However, we may install the meter in another location that we determine to be reasonably accessible, convenient and safe.

Get started

Completing the service installation process involves three simple steps:

If you’ve met the requirements above and are ready to get started, you can, at no obligation, complete the online application to initiate the process. Once submitted, installation will be scheduled with our construction crews and completed based on current backlogs.

Online application

A representative will assess whether or not payment is required based on your completed application and a field investigation at your business.

If required, pay for your service line. Then contact the New Services Department to schedule your installation.
