No power? No problem!
If you’ve been stranded without power due to storms or other disruptions, natural gas generators are a great way to ensure you have power when you need it. Fueled continuously by natural gas, generators are fully automatic, turning on within seconds of an electrical outage and turning off when the power returns.
If you are considering a natural gas backup generator for your home, there are important things you need to know before making your purchase. Prior to your purchase and installation, let us help you determine:
- If the current natural gas system in your neighborhood can support your emergency generator
- If your home’s existing natural gas service line can provide enough pressure to properly run the generator
- If your natural gas meter is large enough to properly run the generator
- What other expenses are involved other than the purchase of the generator and potential gas infrastructure upgrades
All of these items may factor into your decision, so let Virginia Natural Gas help you get started. Call us at 866.399.9778 to let our Market Development team analyze the requirements for the equipment you’d like to purchase.
After our review of your home’s requirements, we will contact you regarding next steps. In the event Virginia Natural Gas requires upgrading your meter and/or service to accommodate your new equipment, additional charges may apply.
Please allow four to six weeks for upgrade work to be completed once final approvals are received.
