Gaerwen residents wanting mains gas urged to come forward

Posted on: 16/03/2017

Residents in Gaerwen who want to be connected to the mains gas network are being urged to come forward and make contact with Wales & West Utilities.

The company is urging local people to register their interest before 7 April 2017, so the company can assess if the extension of the gas network to the area is viable.

Nigel Winnan, Connections Manager for Wales & West Utilities, said:

“By connecting households to the mains gas network, residents can save
hundreds of pounds on their household bills each year.

“Due to the way we’re funded, to start planning to extend the gas network we have to make sure that a high proportion of the local community is interested in connecting – so we’d urge people to make contact. We’ll be able to let them know the benefits of connecting to the mains gas network – as well as the ways we could help them meet the cost of the new connections.”

Wales & West Utilities Customer Service Team is ready to take your call if you are interested in connecting to the mains gas network. You can contact them on freephone 0800 912 2999 or enquiries@wwwutilities.co.uk.

Alternatively, you can contact us on Twitter @WWUtilities or Facebook.com/WWUtilities.

Rhun ap Iorwerth, Assembly Member for Ynys Mon added:

“Mains gas offers many advantages, and here is an opportunity for Gaerwen to get connected. At the end of the day, it’s up to the people of Gaerwen, and if enough people want to make the investment, it’ll happen. I hope as many people as possible look at this offer seriously, and take advantage of the help on offer to decide if it’s for them.”
