National Grid is now required by the New York State Public Service Commission to perform periodic leak surveys and corrosion inspections on all meters – even those located indoors. These inspections are performed by Precision Pipeline Solutions, a licensed National Grid contractor, at no cost to customers. NatGrid will reach out to you to schedule the inspection, or you can schedule a time that works best for you by calling Precision Pipeline Solutions at 1-844-749-8898. PPS representatives are going door to door in an effort to complete the inspections. Please request ID before allowing the inspector into your home. If you are not home at the time, they will leave a door tag. Con Edison likewise has a subcontractor, Aclara, going door-to-door to install smart meters. Residents may call 1 (800) 576-2005 to make a convenient appointment for installation. Appointments are available Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. More information is available online at Again, ask for ID for anyone who comes to your door and asks for access on behalf of a utility.
