No. PG&E does not install earthquake shut off valves. They must be installed beyond the service tee on the customer’s house piping (on the outlet side of the company meter).
Some city and county regulations require the installation of automatic gas shut-off devices. The installation may include excess flow gas shut-off valves and/or earthquake actuated gas shut-off valves. The regulations can vary, but generally apply to:
- New building construction
- Significant alterations
- Additions to existing buildings.
- Check with your local city or county agency to see if regulations apply in your area.
