Connecting to Natural Gas

New Residential Connections

  1. Check to see if natural gas is available at your property by our pipeline locator.
  2. Research appliances you want to connect and get a quote to have them installed by your licensed gas fitter.

    Licenced Gas Fitters

  3. Complete and submit an application with your choice of Retailer.
    Tas Gas Retail
    Aurora Energy

  4. The Retailer will contact you to confirm receipt of your application.

  5. Speak with a gas fitter to understand what your costs for installation are and appliance usage details.

  6. A representative from TGN will call you to arrange a site inspection. At the inspection a meter location diagram will be left in your letterbox.
  7. Following site inspection, an TGN representative will contact you to arrange a convenient time for the meter installation.
  8. Once the meter has been installed, your licensed gasfitter can connect the meter. A minimum of 48 hours prior to connecting the meter, the gasfitter should advise the Retailer so that unlocking the meter can be scheduled to occur when the appliance installation is completed.

If, unfortunately your property does not appear to front the natural gas pipeline, then please submit your Network Extension enquiry here.

TGN registers and evaluates all EOIs based on the distance from the pipeline, density of the street and how many others have expressed an interest in the area.

In all instances, TGN will let you know the outcomes of its evaluation.

Re-connections

To reconnect your property to all the benefits of natural gas, please follow these easy steps:

  1. Complete and submit an application with your choice of Retailer.
  2. The Retailer will contact you to confirm receipt.
  3. A representative of TGN will unlock your meter. TGN endeavours for all reconnections to occur within 1 business day.

If you have a forward moving in date, please let the Retailer know of your preferred connection date.
