 Common Questions

 
If I am adding additional natural gas appliances to my home, will the existing gas service equipment meet increased demand?
​If you are planning to install additional natural gas appliances at your home, BGE will need to determine whether the gas service pipe and meter that supply gas can meet the increased demand.  BGE gas service pipes and meters are sized to handle standard applications—heating, domestic hot water, cooking and clothes drying. As explained in the gas service tariff, if an upgrade is required for standard applications for residences, BGE will provide whatever upgrades are needed except for the excess cost of on-site trenching through improved areas. If you add other non-standard equipment, such as whole-house generators, gas fireplaces and pool heaters, you may require an upgrade of the piping and meter to ensure a reliable supply of natural gas to all of your equipment. The cost of upgrades for non-standard applications is the responsibility of the customer. You will need to contact us to evaluate your gas service and meter capacity. To start the process, please click on the "More" link below for a link to the service application.
What happens after I submit the service application and the load information sheet(s)?
Your job will be assigned to a BGE Representative who will contact you about your project.  You may have to supply additional information to ensure we are able to provide you with a standard level of service.   A standard level of service includes: • One customer initiated job site visit for consultation • One cost estimate (the design and engineering cost will be included in the job) • One construction plan • One change to the construction plan   The BGE representative will provide you with a WMS Number. This number is our primary mechanism for tracking the status of your project. Please refer to this number when making inquiries.
