Helpful Information:

WHAT TO EXPECT:

A representative will contact you to discuss the scope of the project and determine the cost to extend underground pipeline to your property.? IGC’s Main and Service tariff, on file with the IPUC, determines the investment allowance. If the cost of the project is more than we are allowed to invest, you will be provided a quote of the difference. Once a service agreement has been signed by you and any applicable costs collected, your work order is scheduled for installation by our contractor.? Please note that lead times can vary depending on the time of year; from 2-6 weeks for a service line and 4-10 weeks for a main line extension.

Thank you for considering natural gas for your energy needs. We look forward to serving you.
