Welcome to Meota Gas
To our Member’s
We have started Line walking to detect natural gas leaks throughout our distribution system. This is a mandatory reporting requirement from the Federation of Gas Cooperatives, Rural Utilities and Measurement Canada. You may see our Technicians walking along our underground natural gas line on your property. Our Technicians will not be driving through your fields and will leave the all gates as they are found.
Our Technicians will be following all Federal and Provincial recommendations and precautions during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Our Technicians will be easily identified by wearing blue coverall or high visibility vests and hard hat. They will be driving a white Chevrolet or white Dodge service truck.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Meota Gas Cooperative by email; firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (403) 931 2161 during business hours.
Cash as Payment
During these unprecedented times of the coronavirus pandemic Meota Gas has taken the opportunity to review our policy regarding accepting cash as payment for services. We have determined that by accepting cash we are increasing a health and safety risk to our staff and customers. For this reason the Board of Directors have directed the Manager for Meota Gas to no longer accept cash as payment for your monthly natural gas consumption invoice or any other service we provide. This new policy will take effect immediately.
We do have other payment options such as paying by cheque, online banking, Pre-authorized debit, or pay at your bank or ATM. If you would like to participate in our Pre-authorized Debit program, please send an email to email@example.com or fill out a Pre-Authorized Debit form on our web page at www.meotagas.com and drop it off (though the mail slot)to us or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
90 Day Utility Payment Deferral
In Regards to Payment Deferrals:
It has has been announced by the Province of Alberta, utilities (power and gas) payments may be deferred for the next 3 months, during the period of March 18- June 18, 2020, and there will be no discontinuation of service.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that all members understand that although no interest or penalties will be charged during this time, accounts will continue to grow based on usage, etc. Meota Gas Co-op highly recommends that members keep their accounts as current as they are able in order to avoid potentially large bills later this summer. Meota Gas Co-op will work with all members wishing to set up a payment plan.
Those in need of payment deferral are required to contact the office and make a formal request. Please call 403-931-2161, or email us at email@example.com.
Meota Gas, the Board of Directors and Management have been closely monitoring the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation since its development and have been making preparations to safeguard our staff, members, and community. Following the announcement by the Alberta Government to introduce sweeping measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 across the province, Meota Gas is activating its Business Continuity Plan.
Effective, Monday, March 16, 2020, the Meota Gas office will be closed to the public and all non-essential operations will be suspended for the time being. The staff will still be available by phone and email. To make payments to the office, payments can be dropped through the door mail slot. However, we would prefer all payments be made by pre-authorized debit or online. To set either of these payment options up please phone the office.
Meota Gas remains committed to maintaining effective communication with our customers; you can continue to reach us through our emails and office phone. All voicemails left on our office lines are automatically forwarded to our on-call service technician so we can follow-up as required.
On behalf of the Meota, the Board of Directors and Management, we encourage all of our members to understand that these are unprecedented times and we all need to work together to help reduce the impact of this growing pandemic.
