Your step by step process to get natural gas connected to your home

Established Homes

Contact a gas retailer to open an account 


Contact a local gasfitter to get started. Find a licensed gasfitter on the Master Plumbers & Gasfitters Association website.

Then, one of our friendly Gas Distribution personnel will come out to your home to finish the connection for you. 

Important information for gas fitters

The Building and Energy department of the State Government of WA is in the process of informing gas fitters about the transitional arrangements to phase out the use of paper compliance notices for gasfitting work carried out in Western Australia.

Feedback from industry shows a high level of satisfaction with eNotice from the vast majority of practitioners and stakeholders. The adoption of eNotice by industry has been excellent and the current percentage of electronic lodgements has reached approximately 90% for gas Notices of Completion.

As of 1 October 2019, Notices of Completion must be lodged electronically.

Notices of Intent are not supported by eNotice and will remain in paper form indefinitely.

ATCO will not be able to accept Notices of Completion in paper form beyond the transition date where they have been certified prior to this date.


New Homes

  • Speak to your builder about connecting to natural gas.
  • Your builder will work directly with your chosen gas retailer to organise the connection.
  • Your connection will be completed as part of your ‘pre-start’ process.


We will make sure your natural gas connection is complete and ready to use when you move in.

Natural gas is safe, affordable, reliable and clean
