Utility Buddy says Hello! He also wants you to be safe with Natural Gas!

Hi! I'm Utility Buddy. I'm a natural gas meter who loves to talk about being safe with Natural Gas. There are so many great things to learn about natural gas. It's a great energy source, but like all other energy sources, we must make sure that we handle it in the safest way possible. I love answering questions about natural gas safety, so feel free to email me at and I will be sure to respond to you.

You can also follow me on Twitter at @UtilityBuddy and be sure to “like” the Richmond VA Department of Public Utilities on Facebook.
