What is your property's meter point reference number (MPR/MPRN)


You need to find out if there is a gas meter at the premises. If you are unable to find it or you are unsure about it, call XOSERVE on 0870 608 1524 and ask for your MPRN. Your gas MPRN (Meter Point Reference Number) is the unique identifying number for your property. Your MPRN is sometimes referred to as a M Number. It is unique to your property and does not change if you change supplier. You can also visit Find My Supplier and input the necessary information find out about your MPRN. If you do not have a MPRN, you will need to contact the National Grid and ask them to create one for your property.

Apply early to get your business gas meter installed.


You need to get in touch with a business gas supplier and agree a gas contract with them. Once agreed, your new gas supplier will give you a meter installation date. It is usually 1-2 weeks to get the new meter installed at your premises.

Where will your meter be fitted?


Depending on your premises and the positioning of the gas supply, your meter could be fitted either internally or externally. For buildings with gas pipes that don’t enter the property, the meter will have to be outside, in which case your supplier will most likely provide a box or shelter for the meter.
