ADD OR REPLACE EQUIPMENT 

If you’re interested in converting your existing equipment to natural gas or adding natural gas equipment in your commercial space – we're here to help. With our custom design build services, we can develop a cost-effective solution for all of your commercial needs. 

Washington Gas offers a wide range of rebates for business owners to help minimize equipment costs and installations.

To begin the process of adding or replacing natural gas equipment in your commercial property, you’ll need to follow the steps below.
  • Determine your gas requirement

    Determining your facility’s natural gas requirement involves verifying the MBTu per hour and delivery pressure in psi (pounds per square inch) of each natural gas appliance you will keep and/or add. Note: You can do this yourself or you can contact your HVAC contractor, engineer, or facilities manager to get this information.

    • If it is determined that your facility requires 1.5 MBTu or less, contact an HVAC contractor of your choice to get started.
    • If it is determined that your facility requires 1.5 MBTu or more, contact a Washington Gas Commercial Account Manager to get started. 
  • Complete the Service Information Request Form

    The Service Information Request form details your load, delivery pressure and general service requirements. For new construction projects, please include a site plan, property plat and/or dimensional sketch, including meter location, preferably in autoCAD format or in PDF. 
  • Submit the required paperwork

    Submit the required paperwork to:

    Washington Gas
    Attention: Commercial Sales
    6801 Industrial Road
    Springfield, Virginia 22151

    Please ensure the paperwork is complete and lists all anticipated gas equipment, the corresponding MBTu rating and required gas pressure.

  • Determine the cost for an underground gas line and meter

    Washington Gas will perform a cost –benefit analysis of the project per the governing tariff in your jurisdiction of D.C., Maryland or Virginia.
  • Return the signed commitment letter along with any required contribution

    Once the evaluation is complete, you will receive a customer commitment letter from Washington Gas. Sign and return the letter, along with required contribution, if any.
  • Request a gas meter

    Upon completion of the underground gas service, contact Washington Gas to request a gas meter.
  • Schedule gas line installation

    A Washington Gas underground contractor will contact you to schedule the gas line installation.
  • Washington Gas applies for all necessary permits and permissions

  • Gas lines within the structure are inspected

    The gas lines within the property must be inspected by the proper code authority of the jurisdiction. Your installer is responsible for tie-in.
