        • Important Information
          • Please call Customer Service at 1-800-365-3234 BEFORE having a generator installed as an insufficient flow of gas to a generator may cause it or other natural gas appliances in the home to malfunction, creating an unsafe situation.
          • It is important for customers to ensure their existing natural gas line and meter are sufficient to provide the additional volume of natural gas required.
          • In some cases, a field visit will be required and if an upgrade is necessary, the customer will be responsible for the costs
          • Consult a licensed contractor or installer for proper sizing of your natural gas generator.
