Our role

We connect homes to natural gas in the Wellington, Taranaki, Manawatu, and Hawke’s Bay regions. We take this connection from our underground network pipeline in your street to your home - or where the gas meter we will install is located. The great thing about connecting to natural gas is that we offer this for free! For most people connecting to our network the cost is zero dollars, saving you around $2,000. There are over 280,000 natural gas users in New Zealand’s North Island.

The Gas Hub is also here to help you make the best energy decisions for your home. When you decide it’s time to get connected to gas, we can sort that out easily with you via our online gas connection application or you may like to call our customer team directly on 0508 GAS HUB.

We don’t bill you for your gas, you’ll need to select an energy retailer for that job. We also don't supply or install your gas appliances, a gasfitter will do this for you. You can find a local gasfitter or energy retailer here.

At The Gas Hub we love natural gas. If you want more comfort and control for less cost, then we think you'll love it too!

Our company
