Contact your New Business Coordinator if you are building commercial or multi-unit townhome properties.

Requesting Additional Meters

Nicor Gas usually sets the first meter at the time of gas service installation. If any additional meters are required, you will need to request the meter set installation after the fuel line has been stubbed out and at least one appliance is connected. Please allow three to four business days from request date for additional meters to be set.

Please review the Guidelines for Ordering Additional Meters information sheet before requesting an additional gas meter.

Call our Builder First Department at 888.NICOR.4U to schedule the meter installation.

New Service Installation Guidelines

For residential service, when a home in your development is ready for natural gas service, you'll need to complete an online Single Meter Service Request Form for each home or you can complete the Fax Form and fax it to us at 630.305.0466.

Please note: we recommend that you apply for new gas service at time of excavation.

Once you have a back-filled foundation, please submit your Job Site Readiness Form which will start the planning process of your gas installation.

For commercial service, please contact a new business coordinator using the tool above to find the coordinator for your county. Or, please fill out our Commercial Service Information Request form.

Requirements

  • Please accurately complete all necessary information requested on the Single Meter Request Form and complete the required appliance list to ensure accuracy of load submitted on application. 
  • When choosing the meter location and gas service route, please keep in mind the following: 
    • The meter should be located within 3-5 feet from the front corner of your home. 
    • We cannot cross a septic system with a gas line. 
    • We are able to cross underground electric and water services, but their locations must be clearly and accurately marked 
    • Be sure you also identify the location of your underground sprinkler system, if applicable. 
    • There must be a 3-foot clearance from the gas meter to any door or window openings, vents, electric meter, Greater clearances may be needed for some equipment. Check with your gas equipment installer for details

Builder and Developer Overview

Builder and Developer Responsibilities

As the Builder/Developer for a project, it is your responsibility to ensure that all documentation provided to Nicor Gas is current and accurate. If you change any information you initially provide us, it may affect our agreement. Changes to your original submission (i.e., site plan alterations, number of homes/units, or the equipment to be installed and pressure delivery requirements) can have an impact on Nicor Gas' engineering estimates (service/meter size and pressure), construction estimates, and financial analysis, and should therefore be communicated to your Nicor Gas new business coordinator as soon as possible.

Service Agreement

The Service Agreement for Installation of gas main or new commercial service addresses the responsibilities and requirements of both parties. Please be sure to review this document and contact your Nicor Gas new business coordinator with any questions or concerns. A completed signed Service Agreement must be returned prior to natural gas main and/or service design.

Requesting Residential Gas Main Installations

To request gas main to serve your home, business or new development, view the Project/Development List of Requirements needed. Depending on the scope of your project, Nicor Gas may require development drawings or a plat of survey. A new business coordinator will be happy to assist you in determining the location of Nicor Gas's closest natural gas main facilities.

Please contact your new business coordinator to schedule a pre-construction meeting.

Requesting Residential New Service Installations

When you are ready for the installation of natural gas service to an individual home within your project, you will need to complete a Single Meter Service Request Form for each service line to be installed. You may view our Step By Step Process for instructions on completion. If you have a multi-residential unit building that requires multiple meters, please contact your Nicor Gas new business coordinator for guidance.

Each service requested must include all required information. To submit your request, either fax to 630.305.0466 or you can complete online. When you are ready for installation, refer to the job site readiness checklist and complete and submit the Job Site Readiness Form. You should expect to have gas service within a four-week time frame from the time your job site is ready.

Requesting Commercial or Industrial Gas Main Installations

Contact your new business coordinator who will assist you in obtaining service for commercial or industrial installations.
