Each gas bottle (cylinder) contains 45kg of gas when full, which equals 2250 megajoules or 625 kilowatts of energy.
Piped LPG (Bulk Supply)
The gas supply is metered at your home. For the gas that you use, a fixed daily line charge and variable charge applies for the ongoing gas supply. OnGas reads your meter regularly and sends you an account, much like your electricity supply. Call us on 0800 84 12 12 to find out where our piped LPG networks are situated and pricing.

Gasfitting - New Installations
If you're adding bottled gas to your home for the first time, you will require a gasfitter to install the pipework, connect your appliances and certify the installation is safe. Safety regulations require that once OnGas has delivered the cylinders, the gasfitter will need to return to connect the installation to the gas supply (cylinders) and turn the gas on.
Apart from the gasfitter's time and materials (eg. pipework), there are some initial set up costs for your cylinder station which will also be incurrred from your gasfitter. These are items such as the concrete pavers to place the bottles on, chain set, regulator cover, and hoses.
