EDISON, NJ - Public Service Electric & Gas Company (PSE&G) will be inspecting natural gas meters in Edison and North Brunswick to ensure the continued safety and reliability of gas services.

 

This safety inspection is free and will take about 10 minutes. Unless the meter requires immediate repair, there will be no interruption to service. Additionally, service will not be turned off during this inspection due to billing status.

 

“Customer safety is our number one priority,” said Joe Forline, vice president of gas operations for PSE&G. “It’s important for us to conduct safety inspections like these so that we can check for surface corrosion, leaks and other conditions that might require attention or repair.”

PSE&G reminds customers to always ask for identification when a utility worker comes to the door. Employees carry a PSE&G photo identification badge, wear PSE&G logo apparel and drive PSE&G cars or trucks. If a customer is concerned in any way, they should call PSE&G’s customer service line at 800-436-PSEG (7734) to verify the identity of an employee.

 

Meters that are located outside of customers’ homes will also be inspected. Although technicians will be on your property, customers do not need to be home for outside meter inspections.

 

Important information for customers with inside gas meters:

 

- If a gas meter is located inside a home or business, a technician will ask to gain access to do a visual inspection.

- Gas meters must be accessible for visual inspection when a technician arrives. The scope of the inspection is from the location where the piping enters the building to the outlet of the gas meter.

- Someone over the age of 18 must be home for PSE&G to do the inspection.

- For safety reasons, technicians may ask customers to secure dogs or other pets while he or she performs the inspection.
