Problems with your gas supply
If you smell gas or are concerned about gas safety, please call the Gas Emergency Service, or see our information about gas leaks.
If you have no gas supply
If you think you’ve lost the gas supply to your gas appliances, first check that your gas meter is displaying ‘ON’ rather than ‘OFF’. If your meter is displaying ‘ON’ and you’re still not receiving a gas supply to your appliances, please call the Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999.
If you’ve lost your supply and believe it’s related to your meter and not the network, call the npower team on 0800 073 3000. We're open 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm on Saturday.
If you’re calling outside of these times, please call our emergency metering team on 0800 048 0540 and we will be here to help you.
Issues could include leaking gas meters, or your meter not working.
The National Grid is responsible for the majority of the pipelines that run underground and get the gas to your home. Although in some areas of the country, particularly rural areas, Independent Gas Transporters (IGT) maintain the pipes and pipe networks. It’s estimated that 1 million homes are supplied by IGTs.
If the M number shown on your bill is 10 digits long and begins with 74 through to 77, you are supplied by an IGT. Use the table below to find out which IGT transports gas to your property.
