New customers can sign up with National Grid through the company's official website. The website includes a form, which is quick and easy to fill out.

Customers can also call the company to sign up for new gas service. Although the company operates statewide, it can only provide heat in buildings and houses that have natural gas heating. Customers with oil and other types of heating cannot receive gas service from National Grid, notes the company; however, the company includes information on its website about converting to natural gas.
Existing customers can create an account on the National Grid website to review their bills and pay them online. The website also includes resources such as a budget feature, a usage graph and tips for energy reduction.Learn more about Corporations
