    • You can visit My Account to check what date your meter is scheduled to be read.

  • What is the difference between an actual read and a calculated read?

    • When natural gas meters are not read, NJNG calculates your natural gas usage based on the history of your account and the degree-days from the National Weather Service.  The next time a trained NJNG representative reads your natural gas meter, we will automatically adjust your account to reflect any difference between your calculated and actual usage.
  • After I submit my read, can I find out what my bill amount will be?

    • Not immediately. Regular on-cycle bills will be processed and mailed to you on your next scheduled billing date. For corrected bills, the account will be adjusted and the revised bill will be mailed to you within two business days.

  • Why didn't you use my meter read?

    • If we didn’t use your meter read, one of the following conditions occurred:

      • The meter read was submitted too early.  Please refer to your meter read schedule.
      • The meter read was submitted too late and your account already went to billing
      • It was an inaccurate meter read
      • NJNG read your meter after you submitted your meter read and an NJNG meter read supersedes a customer read

  • If I purchase my natural gas from a supplier other than NJNG, what information will appear on My Account?

    • Only charges billed by NJNG will appear on My Account. If you currently receive your natural gas from a third-party supplier, your billing and meter information will not appear on My Account. We recommend that you directly contact your supplier for payment information.
  • Why do I have gaps in my billing history?

    • There may have been times when you were not billed for service or were billed for service by a third-party natural gas supplier.
  • Why is my NJNG Budget Bill amount different from my Last Bill Amount?

    • Your Last Bill Amount represents the amount charged by a third-party supplier.  The NJNG Budget Bill Amount represents the amount you would be charged under the Budget Plan if you purchased your natural gas from NJNG.
  • What is a Deferred Payment Arrangement (DPA)?

    • A DPA is a payment arrangement that allows you to pay off your total balance in monthly increments.

  • What happens if I move?

  • Why can't I schedule my order online?

    • Make sure you properly entered your NJNG account number.  If you are still unable to schedule an online order, your service may already be turned on, or there may be a billing issue. Please contact Customer Services at 800-221-0051 to speak with a customer service representative.
