Safety is at the heart of everything we do at VGS and continues to hold true as we navigate the ‘new normal’ as 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.

What does this mean for you?

  • While most of our employees continue to work at home, our service team is now conducting some inspections using a phased approach to ensure safety. We will be taking the appropriate public health precautions, including social distancing. Also, please be patient with our questions and please be comfortable to ask us questions or raise any concerns you may have.
  • Our construction, distribution and maintenance teams will also be out in the community performing their safety and maintenance duties. Help us help you: if you see us out and about, please remember to keep your distance of at least six feet. Social distancing and washing our hands can help flatten the curve.
  • For folks interested in VGS energy services: we will be adding a virtual option for VGS energy audits in the near future. Please reach out to if this is something that interests you.
