How much does it cost to connect gas to my business?Read more
The cost of getting a new gas connection can vary hugely depending on a wide array of factors, including:
The remoteness of your area – approximately 3.6 million homes are off the national grid. If your property is in a remote area it can be challenging to connect gas to your property which can increase the cost of getting a new gas connection.
The number of appliances – the more energy required, the bigger the cost of the supply.
Has the property previously had gas? – if it has, it is likely a simple task to get you reconnected, so costs will be kept to a minimum.
The complexity of the works – if the installation work requires access to nearby properties, road closure etc. all of this will likely increase the cost of the work.
The distance of the gas meter from the mains – the further your property is from the mains, the more difficult it is to get connected, therefore the more costly the job.
How do I find out if there’s a gas connection nearby?Read more
If your property has neighbours close by and they have a gas connection, then it’s likely there’s a supply right on your doorstep. Get in touch and we can check to see where the nearest main is.
Alternatively, if they don’t have a gas connection or you are in a rural area, we can also advise on the costs to bring in a new infrastructure which will allow for a connection to your property.
We have a team of specialists on hand to help with all areas of gas connections and assist you with finding out if you have a nearby supply and advise you on the next steps.
Who owns the gas pipes?Read more
Gas pipes are owned by infrastructure providers such as your local distribution network owner (DNO), including National Grid, Northern Gas Networks and Wales and West.
How do I find out who my gas supplier is?Read more
You can find out who your gas supplier is on a recent energy bill. Alternatively, you can use the Meter Point Reference online search tool here.
If there's gas in my street, can I get it connected at my property?Read more
If you’re in luck and there’s a gas connection nearby, contact Crown Energy to obtain a quote and to start the process. We have vast experience providing gas connections to homeowners. We project manage the whole process from the outset for you to ensure the job is completed quickly and professionally and with as little disruption as possible.
Don’t forget, a gas connection simply gives you a source of gas to tap into, so you’ll also need to get a gas meter fitted. This must only be installed by a registered company who carries out the work in line with Ofgem guidelines.
What is my MPRN number? And MPAN number?Read more
They are unique reference numbers for your gas and electricity supply that can be found on your energy bills. If you don’t have a bill, your energy supplier or DNO can tell you what it is, or you can call the National Grid on 0870 608 1524.
MPRN stands for Meter Point Reference Number and relates to your gas supply. It is used to pinpoint individual gas supply points and tends to be a 10 digit number displayed in a grid that starts with the letter S.
You will also have an MPAN number for your electricity supply that stands for the Metering Point Administration Number. It can also be known as an S number or supply number.
