SoCal Gas Advisory: A Call to Conserve


SoCal Gas is implementing a call to conserve this winter season. If you are a current customer see how you can be notified of advisory days and ways to conserve.




Let's Dial it Down, Southern California
SoCalGas® has developed a voluntary call to consumers called a SoCalGas Advisory.

Every winter the demand for natural gas increases as we heat our homes and businesses. This winter, we are facing limited availability of natural gas locally. That's why we are asking all Southern Californians to work together to help conserve natural gas on certain days.

If a SoCalGas Advisory is called, you can help Southern California conserve natural gas by:
  • Lowering your thermostat to 68 degrees
  • Waiting a day to use major natural gas appliances
  • Washing with cold water, when possible
Sign up below to receive SoCalGas Advisories if an advisory is called, or call 1-800-427-2200 for more information.
