Getting Natural Gas Service

Customers who do not currently have natural gas service to their home should call our Gas Marketing Department at 352-393-1464 to find out if it is available in their area and to schedule a visit from a gas representative. Customers will also need to arrange to have the gas service installed in their home.

How to Apply

  • Confirm that the property currently has natural gas service.
  • Arrange for an estimate and a subsequent equipment installation with a GRU Natural Gas Partnering Contractor.
  • Submit completed rebate form with proof of purchase within 30 days of installation.
  • An on-site, post-installation inspection may be required for quality assurance.
  • Rebate will be issued in the form of a check or a credit on the customer's utility bill. GRU retains the right to apply the rebate to any delinquency on any account in the customer's name.
