Service standards

We strive to deliver a reliable gas service.  

The service we provide is covered by our Guaranteed Service Levels (GSL) scheme. You may be eligible to compensation if we do not meet these levels. 

Please remember, these Guaranteed Service Level payments happen automatically. They are calculated at the end of each quarter. You don’t need to lodge a claim to qualify.  

For repeat interruptions, this happens at the end of the calendar year. The GSL payment will appear as a credit on your electricity bill and you don't need to do anything.

Site clean up  

In most underground gas network jobs, we need to excavate nature strips and public paths or roads. This must happen before we install new gas services or carry out repairs to the network.  

If we work on a nature strip, we aim to level the soil on the day we complete our work. We then let the soil settle for several days. This is to ensure there is no subsidence around the gas pipes. Once the soil has settled, revegetate the site with grass and fresh topsoil.   

We'll also put down temporary backfill of bitumen if remove any bitumen or concrete outside your property. We notify your local council afterwards so they can carry out the permanent repair.
