Natural Gas Services & Rates

The City of DeFuniak Springs, FL provides natural gas to most residents and businesses where main natural gas lines exists.  To activate service:  

  1. Call our natural gas supervisor at (850) 892-8534 to see if your home or business natural gas line in your neighborhood or area. 
  2. If your location has a main gas line within your neighborhood or area, the natural gas supervisor will then determine if there is a natural gas line already running to your home or business.  If so, the supervisor will then instruct you on what you need to do to pay for and initiate gas service.  If NOT, you cannot take advantage of natural gas services until a time the City installs a main line in your area.
  3. If your location DOES have a line within your neighborhood or area, but the natural gas supervisor determines your property does NOT have a line running to your home or business from that line, he will evaluate and advise of the cost to install a pipe from the main line to your home or business.
