What happens if there is a gas outage?
Gas outages are usually found and reported by you, the customer. It starts with a call to our office (403-227-4861) that you have no heat. Crossroads Gas employees will immediately notify all the affected customers by phone. Please note that none of your gas appliances will be working, including your furnace, so be prepared. Repairs will be completed as quickly as possible. Crossroads Gas employees will then phone all the affected customers to let them know that gas has been restored and ask them if they need help relighting appliances. If so, we will visit each customer’s property to assist. If we can’t get a hold of you or your emergency contacts, we will visit your property and continue trying to reach you. It’s very important to keep your contact info up to date. Planned outages are rare and when they do occur we use an alternate source of gas supply so that your service will not be affected.
I’ve hit an underground gas line, now what?
STOP all work, shut off any machinery and leave the area on foot. DON’T attempt to repair the line. CALL CROSSROADS or 911 if there is a fire or injuries. DON’T continue your project until authorized by a Crossroads Gas representative.
Can I view my bill online?
Not yet but we’re working on it. For now you can sign up for e-billing to get your bill emailed to you each month.
Can I choose which retailer I get my natural gas from?
If your property is in rural Alberta, then probably not. Gas co-ops are different from all other Alberta regulated and competitive retailers. We are both a gas distributor with our own underground gas line system and a gas billing provider. In Alberta, consumers cannot choose their own gas distributor. Crossroads operates under the Rural Utilities Act legislation which gives participating co-ops the exclusive right to provide natural gas service to all consumers in a franchise area and this cannot be infringed upon by other retailers. Gas co-op pricing and fees are often very competitive or even lower than other retailers. The reason for this is we are not-for-profit and are locally owned and controlled by you our members, not shareholders.
