Safety is foundation value at VGS and that continues to hold true as we navigate our ‘new normal’ related to COVID-19, or Coronavirus. We want to take this opportunity to update you on our continued work to keep our customers, our team members and our communities safe.

We are closely monitoring the situation with local, state and federal health agencies, as well as reinforcing guidelines from  the Vermont Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control.

Bottom line: we are prepared to serve you safely and reliably while our community is impacted by the virus. That means we have the resources to keep your homes and businesses warm and comfortable for as long as necessary.

What does this mean for you?

  • As of November 23,2020, we are postponing non-urgent service work inside our customers’ homes and businesses. Our representatives will be reaching out to affected customers to reschedule this work. If it is necessary for our representatives to enter your home, we are taking all appropriate public health precautions.  We ask for your patience with our questions and to please feel comfortable to ask questions or raise any concerns you may have.  As always, if you think you smell gas, leave the premises immediately and call us right away at 1-800-639-8081
