Nicor Gas, along with their qualified contractor 3P Utility – Tribus Services, has begun (or will soon begin) deployment of the Meter Modernization project in Channahon. 3P Utility – Tribus Services employees carry identification indicating that they are contractors for Nicor Gas. The device installation takes 10-15 minutes for most residential or regular sized meters, but may take up to 30 minutes on large commercial or rotary gas meters. If we can safely access a customer’s natural gas meter, they do not need to be present for the installation. If a customer has an indoor meter, they will be contacted to schedule an appointment.
Please note that customers were notified in advance using various means (postcards, letters, etc.). Here is an example of the Meter Modernization letter Nicor already sent to customers in advance of the installation, as well as Meter Modernization FAQ’s.
