Three Steps to Your New Gas Connection

When it comes to getting your new gas connection, we understand that you want the process to be as smooth and hassle-free as possible. That’s why we will go out of our way to find suppliers who will work go above and beyond to support your business during the process.

Here are the three simple steps involved in getting a new gas supplier onboard:

  1. Application: You will need to provide all of your details so a design engineer can check it over and begin the design and quotation process.
  2. Design & Quotation: After you have completed the paperwork, you will receive the quotation along with any site plans. Each quotation will show how long it is valid for.
  3. Acceptance: Once you’ve accepted the quote and made payment, the project is started.

Gas providers can provide the following services:

  • Planning and Design: Tailored plans and quotations to ensure that your gas connection meets your specific needs.
  • Project Management: The provider’s team will ensure that your gas connection is completed on time and within budget.
  • Increase or Decrease of Supply: A good gas supplier can help you increase or decrease your gas supply, as well as your electricity, water, and telecoms supply.
  • Complete Infrastructure: You should be able to get cables, mains, pipework, mains connections, disconnections, and diversions services.
  • Metering: They will manage installation, alteration, and removal of all meters.
  • Tailored Energy Contracts: They will have fixed and flexible energy contracts to suit the needs of contractors, developers, and end-users.
  • Temporary Energy Supply: You could access temporary energy supply for construction sites.
  • Site Investigations and Evaluations: They will conduct site investigations and evaluations to ensure health and safety.

At Business Electric, we will manage this whole process in conjunction with your allocated project manager.

How much does it cost to connect gas to your business?

The cost of connecting gas to your business can vary significantly depending on several factors. The following are some of the factors that can influence the cost:

  • Remoteness of your area: If your business is located in a remote area, the cost of connecting gas can be higher due to the additional expenses involved in transporting the gas to your location.
  • Number of appliances: The more appliances you have, the higher the energy requirement, and hence, the higher the cost of the gas supply.
  • Previous gas connection: If your business has previously had a gas connection, the cost of reconnection will likely be lower since the infrastructure is already in place.
  • Complexity of the works: If the installation work requires access to nearby buildings or road closures, the cost of the installation will likely increase.
  • Distance of the gas meter from the mains: The further your business is from the gas mains, the more challenging it is to connect, and hence, the more costly the job.

Your team at Business Electric will assess your specific needs and provide you with a cost estimate for different suppliers based on the factors mentioned above.

How to Determine if There is a Gas Connection Nearby

If you are unsure whether there is a gas connection nearby, there are a few ways to find out.

Firstly, if your neighbours have a gas connection, it is likely that there is a gas supply nearby. Contact us and we can check to see where the nearest gas main is located.

If your neighbours do not have a gas connection or you live in a rural area, we can still assist you with finding out the costs to bring in a new infrastructure that will allow for a connection to be made to your property.

Our team of specialists is available to help with all aspects of gas connections and can provide you with expert advice on how to proceed.

Who Owns the Gas Pipes?

Gas pipes are typically owned by infrastructure providers, such as your local distribution network owner (DNO). Some examples of DNOs include National Grid, Northern Gas Networks, and Wales and West.

How Can You Check Who Your Gas Supplier Is?

To check who your gas supplier is, you can locate a recent gas bill. Your supplier’s name and contact details should be on the bill. If you don’t have a recent bill, you can use the Find My Supplier search tool. This free tool requires you to enter a few details about your property and will provide you with your gas supplier’s name, as well as your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) and gas transporter. This information can also be found on your gas meter.

Here are the steps to follow to use the Find My Supplier search tool:

  1. Go to the Find My Supplier website
  2. Enter your postcode and click “Find address”
  3. Select your address from the list
  4. Enter your meter number or MPRN (if you have it)
  5. Click “Find supplier”

Once you have found out who your gas supplier is, you can contact them directly if you have any questions or concerns about your gas supply.

What is my MPRN number? And MPAN number?

If you are wondering what your MPRN and MPAN numbers are, they are unique reference numbers for your gas and electricity supply that can be found on your energy bills. These numbers are essential for identifying your energy supply points and ensuring that you are billed correctly for the energy you use.
