Southwest Gas - Traffic incident, equipment in roadway without marks, flags, cones or workers

On March 29, 2022, I was returning home with my son in my vehicle. At the intersection of West Roger Road and North Tuttle Avenue (85705) I saw a SW Gas worktruck and four workers parked about thirty feet from the intersection at Tuttle. There were no flags, no cones, and no movement from the workers. As I turned onto Tuttle, my vehicle collided with a...

Southwest Gas - Gas Bill high since Mach 2020

They changed my meter and then my $150 rolling credit was wiped out in one billing cycle with a new bill of $189 and as far as they can go back they seen I have never had a $189 bill in their history and yet they can't explain why this is happening. I believe they are doing this with the new meters and adjusting the numbers in office before the bill end dates. I have been writing down my numbers every day for the last month to see if their numbers match and so far they don't but I have to wait a full billing cycle to be sure.

Desired outcome: change my meter ASAP

Southwest Gas - Gas bill/gas meter

A few months ago (back in Sept 2021) the gas meter was relocated for some reason and since that time I've started receiving gas bills over $300 a month. No one can tell me why the bill is so high. Of course this hasn't stopped the high bills from coming or the disconnection notices that have been attached to some of them. I do not have a lot of item...

Southwest Gas - Customer service - gas line

In February 2022 I called SW Gas and requested gas service. The rep looked my address up and then asked if I had a meter outside to which I said no. She then told me I needed to get the city of Phoenix out to make sure I indeed have a gas pipe to service the house. I spent $150 for a city permit and the city came out and confirmed I have a gas line to the...

Southwest Gas - Residential Service

Gas service shut off by technician without notifying homeowner who was in the house at the time (working from home). Bill payments never missed and remain up to date. Card left at home (on gate) does not list reason for discontinuing service. Now, despite inability to use appliances, no heat or hot water, SWG claims can't turn on for 5 days... This is absolutely insane. Horrible business practice by an overly entitled utility.

Desired outcome: Turn my service back on in a reasonable time

Southwest Gas - Service Turned Off Without Permission

On February 22nd, 2022, my hot water and heating ceased in my apartment unit. I believed the issue might have been a faulty water heater or furnace. I called an emergency technician to diagnose the issue. He could not identify the problem. Due to the time of day (late afternoon/evening), I had to find accommodations because it was very cold out side. I got an Airbnb, which I paid for out of pocket. I called another technician the next morning who arrived and discovered there was no gas coming through to the furnace or water heater. He recommended that I call Southwest Gas. I called southwest gas and they informed me that someone called and cancelled my service in error - that they put in the wrong service address when setting up gas at their location, and then cancelled service at my unit. I asked Southwest Gas to expedite service getting turned on in my unit immediately, but my service is still not turned on. I do not have hot water or heat. I am frustrated that I have had to pay several hundred dollars in hotel fees and service fees, because SWG did not verify the person was a resident at my location or an authorized user, and simply allowed this person to start and cancel service without verification. They should have verified this person - if anyone can start and stop service at any location without verification, that is a major service flaw. I am out several hundred dollars and want to be reimbursed by Southwest gas for this error and major inconvenience. I have missed days of work because of this issue, because I have to now be available all day to wait for service to be turned on.

Desired outcome: Compensation for hotel and service fees to technicians

Southwest Gas - EPP Is Not Honored

I paid my bill in full to be put back on the Equal Payment Plan. I paid my new bill on the day it was due. They "rebuilt" my plan, took away the EPP after I paid the EPP bill, then hit me with a bill four times the amount!

Feb. 7 96.00 Paid

Feb 11 388 New bill (reps said a computer error took me off the EPP

Feb 17 Put back on EPP to be activated in May when late spring arrives and bills are very low, lower than the new amount applied for EPP

Desired outcome: Either activate the EPP. Also, apply my payments as they should have been to the acct.

Southwest Gas - Lack of Service to turn gas ON

Good afternoon, I called Southwest Gas to turn the gas on 1/17/22. I was told the earliest appointment was on 1/19/22 12pm to 4pm. On 1/19/22 the technician left a note saying we weren't home, he called, and rang the doorbell. We moved in the night before and per our phone call with a supervisor, they had my phone number wrong. They couldn't send someone to turn the gas in until 1/20/22. I am pregnant and have a 1 year old. Yet, as a grandmother and mother the customer service person and supervisor don't care and can't send someone until 1/20/22.

Desired outcome: An apology

Southwest Gas - Outstanding bill

I am being charged the gas bill for a place I moved out of. When I moved in there the balance was transferred to my account when the same thing happened. They are trying to charge me 400$. I have proof that I moved out in February of 2020. We saved up to buy our first home and we are being slammed with a 400 dollar bill of gas we didn't use. How can they let the gas run for a year with no payment?

Desired outcome: make current people living their pay for the gas they used.

Southwest Gas - BILLING PORTAL and Late Fees

We filed a complaint with the BBB. Of course, the case is closed because, I guess it does not really matter to anyone but us. Surely, someone out there has the same issues. SWG Response: "We have made multiple attempts to contact the customer but have not been able to. The customer has also not called us back to discuss her concern." {That is completely not true. A message was left twice with no response back}. The customer service
wait is over 2 hours on most days. SWG other Response: 'When customers make payments through our web portal "MyAccount" on swgas.com, all payments receive success confirmations which include the customer's account number, their service address, the transaction/confirmation ID, the payment amount, payment date and last four digits of the account number the payment was made with. {Not true. NOW, it all of a sudden supplies conformation numbers, after OUR complaining for months.} SWG hopes you will type your acct number into its system for storing, which is never going to happen. We don't believe it that type of "security" thanks. It will keep the late fee and percentage fee (only $15, but it's the fact of the matter}. Shame on SWG!

Desired outcome: I don't think it matters anymore for the average person.

Southwest Gas - Gas leak

LOCATION: 1081 S Dutch John SPring Court, Green Valley, AZ. 85614 I received a high gas bill for June 2021 and called southwest gas. After an hour wait, the representative said I must have used more gas. I questioned this as things were similar as they have been and I had never had a bill this high in summer. I then received a very high bill in July 2021...

Southwest Gas - My gas meter broke and they charged me for 291 therms in March of this year and they have never corrected the charge.

My gas meter recorded a huge change of therms in March 2021 so they sent someone out to check the meter and it was deemed broken and the person changed the meter on May 5, 2021. Normal usage is in the low 30's with the January usage of 48 therms.

Per my records I have called the help line on 4-23-21, 5-5-21, 5-12-21, 5-19-21, 6-1-21, as well as sometime in late June. On the June 1st call the person I talked to told me that "no one had done anything since billing had not been notified". He apologized and said they will be notified finally. On the call later that month I was told that they were trying to look into the usage on the corresponding month the previous year and would probably use that usage instead of the 291 therms.

I am a retired accountant and it looks like you could just reverse the bad billing while they try to figure out what the replacement billing or guess should be and fix that at a later date. But that was not done and I still show an outstanding billing of almost $400 and my Minimum payment due is $391.53. I have been making payments of $34 all this time which was my payments were suppose to be on the even payment program.

How much longer is this going to take to fix the problem? It was Southwest's Gas meter that broke. The meter had been there since I purchased the house in 2000.

Southwest Gas - Gas service

On July 12, 2021 Although I don't remember the exact wording from that date I emailed SWG with a question about, what if I suspect a stove gas leak, do I call SWG or a contractor? I never received any response from SWG. Over a week later at about 12 midnight on Wednesday 7/ 21/21 a SWG service employee came knocking at our door stating that he was there to...

Southwest Gas - Need more people to work

These people at Southwest Gas, need more people to work, the hold time is so bad that you wait 45 minutes or more
It is ridiculous what they put people thru on hold. All these recordings, etc. They say they will call you back, but that never happens.
Waited all afternoon on 7/192021 for Pillamen to call but it never came about. Had to call on 7/20/2020 and spoke to
Norma, was on hold for a long time and she was going to speak to her supervisor and try to fix my problem,
Finally made an auto payment thru my bank just to get this stressful situation handled. Have these people have no
respect for their customers, only to take your money and run.

I don't know what else to do. This has been going on since May. My Name Is Kate Evans and I live at 200 James Ct # 75 Moundhouse Nv . My gas acct is 910002544909

Southwest Gas - ability to pay on line

In the last month I have made two request looking for answers as to why I cannot pay my bill on line. They want me to call in so you can charge a $2.50 service fee for making the transaction. I go to the web page, I put in my password / code and it just goes around in circles trying to connect. I have not received any information as to why this is happening. I try the lost password, it send me the one I have always used. I talked to someone else and he said this is the new way for SW gas to make a few extra bucks--it happens to him to. Is that correct? I put in the client number and it comes back as incorrect.
They have not responded to my requests of why.

Desired outcome: fix it

Same SUBSTANDARD problem is happening today (18JUNE 2021). I called 45 minutes ago (10:50 AZ Time) and am still on hold/ waiting for the (apparent) single person to answer the phone. "What a way to run a railroad". Apparently SW Gas put in a new system that is full of bugs ands cannot figure out how to fix it.

Southwest Gas - Cancelling Service

This company is awful.

I just told my home and the usual time line to notify the utility company is 3 days. I called with 4 days before closing and they are making me wait an additional 5 days because they are busy.

It is totally unacceptable that I would have to pay for teh new owner for 4 additional days. Spoke to a supervisor who was snarky and basically non caring, I pity anyone who has to use them. Thankfully I am not using them in my new location. Customer service I would give them an F.

Desired outcome: Cancel service on Friday May 28

Southwest Gas - Deposit for gas service

I was at work April 12, 21 when I called to set up new service and did not have my bank info with me to set up auto pay which is how the representative said I could avoid a deposit since my utilities have been included in my rent for sometime. The representative said I could call back and take care of it. My service was started and I moved in. I called on...
