Contact a gas retailer to get connected
The first step in getting connected to the gas network is to contact a gas retailer. ATCO are not a gas retailer, we own and operate the gas network, ensuring safe, reliable and affordable natural gas is delivered to your home or business. We do not sell natural gas like a gas retailer. ATCO are only one part of the gas supply chain which includes 'Production', 'Transmission pipelines', 'Distribution pipelines' (this is where ATCO come in) and 'Retail'. A list of gas retailers with contact information can be found below.
Alternatively you can contact a licenced 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.
- 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.
Your natural gas connection should be complete and ready to use when you move in.
