2. Select a Contractor

Solicit a licensed and bonded plumbing and heating contractor qualified to service, install or replace natural gas equipment and interior gas lines. Discuss the details of your new natural gas service with your contractor, including the location of the natural gas meter and appliances you wish to install.

Citizens Energy Group will be responsible for installing the natural gas lines from the main back to where you and your contractor determine the meter is to be located.


3. Submit a Gas Service Application

Complete the Online Gas Service Application with all of your applicable natural gas equipment and BTU loads, meter location, inside gas line type, delivery pressure required and applicable documents/site plans (your contractor can provide this information).

4. Construction

Installing gas lines and meter settings to your residence or business will take up to 6 weeks from the time we receive a completed application to process. Incomplete applications will delay the process. 


5. Meter Installation

Once your gas line is installed and/or your meter setting is installed, you will receive an email with a link for the financially responsible party to request the meter. All inside gas piping and at least one gas appliance must be installed and operational prior to making this request. We will need to gain entry so we can test the inside gas lines when we set the meter.
