TURN OFF GAS SERVICE

Before You Move …

Be sure to notify PGW at (215) 235-1000 at least seven days before the shutoff  or transfer to avoid unnecessary costs. You are responsible for gas used at the property until PGW can access your meter to shut it off.

A note for landlords: If you are requesting a gas shutoff for a tenant, download and submit a notarized Voluntary Relinquishment Form with the required signatures of all your tenants.

 

Request a Meter Reading

To request a meter reading from PGW call (215) 235-2244. Be sure to write down your meter number before giving us a call.
