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). PG&E will turn off your gas for the installation and restore your gas after installation is complete.
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.
