Gas Service Connections

We can help home owners, private landlords and Registered Providers to get onto the gas network for the first time. The Wales and West Utilities Ltd gas network can be extended to homes and communities without access to mains gas after agreement with industry regulator, Office of Gas & Electricity Markets (OFGEM).

How do you apply for your Gas Connection

Wales & West Utilities Ltd provide funding to some householders to connect to the mains gas network. You could qualify for a full or part payment towards the cost of a new connection for your home.  The offer applies to existing homes only and you must live in the home at the time you apply.  You may receive a grant if you meet any one of the following criteria:

  • You receive key qualifying benefits,
  • You would need to spend 10% or more of your household income to heat your home to defined levels of comfort (Wales only) or you have a low income and high home energy costs as defined by the Government (England only).
  • You live in an area designated for support by the energy regulator

The first thing to do is to apply to Wales & West Utilities Ltd for a quotation for the work.  They will send this to you with an application form for the gas connection grant.  Go to the Wales and West Utilities Website to apply for a quotation for your gas connection now or call them on 0800 91 22 999.

How it works

  1. You need to complete and return the grant application Assessment Form and return it to Integrated Energy Services. We will let you know without delay if you can receive a contribution towards your gas connection.
  2. If you qualify, we will send you a Gas Connection Voucher to pay towards the cost of the gas connection.
  3. Then you send the Voucher, any extra payment if required, and your signed Quotation Acceptance form, to Wales & West Utilities Ltd.
  4. Wales & West Utilities Ltd will then arrange for your gas connection to take place.

Important Note: You must apply for a contribution towards your gas connection BEFORE you pay Wales & West Utilities for the gas connection.
