Notice: Due to the lack of natural gas capacity in the region, MGED will not open new natural gas services requested as of February 13, 2019. Customers can transfer ownership of existing services only. They can also make improvements to their existing gas service (i.e. replace a gas furnace, gas stove, or gas hot water heater), so long as the load profile for their home or business does not increase as an active service before this moratorium. Expansion of service, such as adding a generator or appliance, will be subject to limitations and will be reviewed on a case by case basis. This review process will allow us to continue to safely and reliably serve existing natural gas customers in Middleborough.

If you are interested in new natural gas service when it becomes available, use this form. MGED will review new service interest and requests as soon as the capacity issue is adequately addressed.

Security deposits. We require a deposit on new commercial accounts. The amount is based on an estimated bill for up to three months or such other amount as permitted by applicable laws and regulations. The minimum deposit for a new commercial account is $250.

Commercial customers who are adding a new electric service should read these instructions and contact our electric division with expected load information. As noted above, no new natural gas services will be opened as of February 13, 2019 due to pipeline capacity restraints.
