PLEASE NOTE: Payments must be received in our office on or before the due date to avoid late charges. Telephone/Online Banking can take up to 5 business days. If payment is not received on the due date it may not show as paid on the next bill posted.
SANG will work with our Members to ensure that accounts remain current. If you require assistance please contact our office.
Gas bills are due on the 5th of each month. After the due date, a 2% "late payment" penalty charge will be applied to any remaining balance and will show on your next bill.
Once an account has three gas bills owing, it is deemed in arrears and will be handled by SANG's internal collections department. A registered letter will be sent to notify the account holder that payment is overdue and payment is needed promptly. If no payments are received or arrangements made, a gas lock off notice in the form of a yellow tag (with a deadline for payment) will be left at the property. If no payments are made by this deadline, the gas meter may be locked off. The member will not be able to burn any gas once locked off until the gas account balance is completely paid as well as a new surety deposit and other disconnection/re-connection fees to cover the costs incurred.
