Storm Alert

National Grid is prepared for the 4th Nor’easter to hit our region in 3 weeks. Our crews are prepared in the event the forecasted snowstorm causes damage to our region’s natural gas network, and we want to ensure you are prepared, too. As you dig out of your homes and businesses, remember the deep snowpack left by snow removal equipment may have clogged vents, furnaces and other appliances. These conditions could lead to natural gas leaks. If you suspect a gas leak, make sure you leave the premises immediately and call National Grid’s emergency number at 1-718-643-4050.

Allowing us to enter your home, or business, to obtain an actual reading of your gas meter on the scheduled date ensures that you will be billed for the actual amount of gas you’ve used during the billing period.

Here are some ways to help our meter reader get a reading:

  • Check your bill for your next meter reading date and write it on your calendar
  • Arrange to admit our meter reader on the scheduled date
  • Please confine pets while the meter reader is on your property
  • Keep your gas meter free of obstacles like boxes, toys, laundry, etc.

When you cannot be available for the meter reading date shown on your bill, please choose one of the following options so that your bills are based on actual meter readings.

Say Goodbye to Estimated Bills!

Automated meter reading is here, which means we no longer need access to your property to get accurate readings.
