Connect to the gas network

Connect

We’ve got all sorts of things connected to our gas network. Homes, businesses, power stations, even buses!

  • Connect your home

    We know that setting up a new gas supply can be confusing. So here’s the information you need to apply for and pay for a gas connection for your home.

    There's a few ways you can get a quote for a gas connection. 

    • You can get an Instant Quote for a gas connection here, or by filling an online form here
    • Alternatively call us on 0800 0726 814 between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday and between 9am and 2pm on Saturday or email connections@wwutilities.co.uk and we'll send you a quote.

    How much will it cost?

    While each connection is slightly different, the costs below is standard for up 10m of work on public land and 20m of work on your land. 

    • If you dig the necessary trenches: £387
    • If we dig the necessary trenches: £596
    • If there is only public land to work on: £329. 

    If you’re happy with the price, we’ll need payment as soon as possible, and we’ll contact you within twelve working days to arrange the work. We aim to finish the work and have you on gas within six weeks of you paying for it. 

    Remember we don't install gas meters - you'll have to arrange that with a gas supplier. Once you've paid for your connection, we will give you a Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) so you can arrange this.

    Due to the impact of Covid-19 and having to stop laying new gas services and altering existing supplies during the lockdown period we are currently taking a little longer than normal to contact customers and arrange for the work to be completed but we are working hard to continually improve this service and return to our normal timescales.

    If you live in a village that is not on the gas network, we may be able to help you connect too. Click here to find out more.

  • Connect multiple homes or your business

    To connect multiple domestic properties like a new housing development or a business, it's a slightly different process.  

    Connecting multiple homes or business is just as easy!

    • If you know how much gas you'll be using, you can get an Instant Quote for a business connection here.
    • To connect multiple homes call us on 0800 0726 814 between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday or email connections@wwutilities.co.uk.

    If you'll be using large amounts of gas, we may need more information from you about the how much gas you're likely to use, and when you'll be using it. To make sure we get it right, we might also need to carry out a feasibility or design study. This will help us come up with the best cost option for you.

    How much will it cost? 

    While each connection is slightly different, the costs below are standard for new housing developments with us digging up to 20m on public land and you digging the necessary trenches on your land.

    • 3-10 homes: £811 per home
    • 11-100 homes: £641 per home

    Once we know what work is needed we’ll give you a quote that’s valid for 90 days. If you’re happy with the price, we’ll need payment as soon as possible, and we’ll contact you within twelve working days to arrange the work. We aim to finish the work and have you on gas within eight weeks of you paying for it.

    Remember we don't install gas meters - you'll have to arrange that with a gas supplier. Once you've paid for your connection, we will give you a Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) so you can arrange this.
