Adding Gas or Electric Service

If you are constructing a new building and are planning for electric service, you should call our electric division (508) 947-3023 early in the project. Our engineering staff will need to see your plans and work with you during the construction phase.

If you are planning for natural gas service as well, you should also call our gas division (508) 947-1535 to determine availability and main size appropriate for your project. At this time, there is a moratorium on new natural gas service lines or expansion that directly impacts the winter load profile for the service area. The MGED Moratorium applies to:

  • New firm residential, commercial and industrial customers gas service connections.
  • Incremental firm gas load on existing residential, commercial and industrial gas accounts.
  • New gas usage for heating, hot water, laundry and cooking.

You must contact the MGED gas division for full review of your project prior to rennovations and/or expansion of an existing gas service.

When all information needs are satisfied, you will be asked to call or visit our administrative office (508) 947-1371, to open a service account to begin service during the project.
