Welcome to the Long Beach Energy Resources Department
Established in 1924, the natural gas utility under the Energy Resources Department provides service to approximately 500,000 residents and businesses in the cities of Long Beach and Signal Hill. Delivered through over 1,800 miles of gas pipelines, our natural gas is safely provided to your home to keep you warm in the winter, cook your food, heat the water in your showers and baths, and dry your clothes. We quickly respond to your requests for service and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for Emergency Response at (562) 570-2140. Our rates for gas services are comparable with Southern California gas utilities and historically have resulted in the lowest average residential gas bills in Southern California. As the citizens of Long Beach are also the owners of our gas utility, our revenues provide not only our gas services and maintenance of our pipeline system but also are used to help pay for vital community services such as police, fire, parks, and library services.

Damage prevention is a shared responsibility! Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling 811 before each job. Dig Alert is a FREE service; call 811 or visit their website.
The city’s water, sewer, and natural gas services will now be provided by one Public Utilities Department following approval by Long Beach voters in the Nov. 8 General Election.
