Do Not Use the Gas Meter for Electric Bonding or Grounding

Do not use SoCalGas' gas meter, gas piping, gas risers or related equipment for electrical bonding or grounding because it is not safe and not permitted. Use caution when touching gas meters, risers, valves and attached components. Faulty household appliances or faulty household electrical wiring could inadvertently introduce electricity to gas facilities that can cause an electric shock. Visit our emergency preparedness webpage for more relevant safety information.
