Prices of a new gas connection
Prices of a new gas connection change/differ depending on the location of the property within the plot, the area of the country you are in and the provider. You can expect to pay at least £250 for the most simple connection where there is no flat/left-and-right distance between the wall of the house where the connection will be made and the public road or path.
Prices increase as the distance and job requirments (such as digging job and restoring back (to a previous state)) increase. Some companies have indicative costs displayed on their websites to give you a better idea ofwhat to expect. If your property is a consdiderable distance from the highway or the nearest gas main, it may become way, way too expensive or even impossible to make a connection and an other choice such as an oil or gas tank or micro generation solutions might be worth thinking about.

The gas supply network in Great Britain is divided into eight networks which are operated by four different gas transporters (GTs). These companies provide and maintain the infrastructure for the gas supply network and are the people who will connect a supply to your new home. They do not have their own meter or sell the gas that passes through their networks which means you will also need to get in touch with a gas supplier who will arrange the installation of a meter at your property, provide you with a supply of gas and send you all those lovely bills! If you have read our page on utility and service connections, you‘ll know that these service connections can take many weeks and can get complicated, so do your research early and know what to expect. Keep a good log of your back-and-forth writing and don‘t be upset if you get passed around different departments or even different companies!
