High Consumption Testing/Billing

Monitoring your gas accounts is one of the many ways to ensure safety at your property. If your gas account is ‘flagged’ indicating an increase of usage compared to the previous month, we will test the service for any leaks. Customers can also request this service if they believe their usage does not compare to what they are billed.

Testing Internal Lines

All internal lines are tested by the NPC before gas is turned on for all service applications.

Change Meter

Several factors would enable the change meter service. E.g., Meter not registering, Index damaged, service upgraded from domestic to commercial.

Temporary Disconnection
