You can also follow the instructions on the form to mail, fax or email your request at your convenience.

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 exisiting 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. 

Buying a home? Please sign up at least three working days before the closing so that we can create a final bill for the seller.
Renting a home? We’ll need at least one day's notice before you would like your service to start. In most instances, service can start within 24 hours.
No security deposits required! However, if you have an outstanding balance from another MGED account, you must make arrangements to pay that balance before new service is started.

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.
