My gas is supplied by an independent gas transporter (IGT), what does this mean?

Using an independent gas transporter means that your gas isn't supplied by the National Grid. An independent company manages the pipes that supply your home with gas. This is relatively common in rural areas and in newly built properties.

What is IGT gas?

IGT-supplied gas is exactly the same as gas that comes from the National Grid. The only difference is that the last stretch of pipes to your home are managed by another company.

When do I find out if I use an IGT?

Check your gas meter point reference number on your bill. If it starts with 74, 75, 76, or 77 then you will be supplied by an IGT.

What does this mean for me?

Nada. From June onwards, we will no longer be charging extra for IGT supplies. Thanks to an industry-wide project called Nexus, the way we switch all gas supplies will be harmonised. This means no extra work for tricky IGT switches and no extra cost for you. For more information, see here.
