Please read an important message regarding storm and restoration safety from Shane Breakie, Vice President, Chesapeake Utilities: https://www.chpk.com/stormupdates

After the Storm

  • Do not operate any natural gas appliances that you suspect have been flooded or damaged.
  • Call Chesapeake Utilities to have our trained technicians relight your pilot lights, inspect your appliances to ensure they are in proper working condition and turn your natural gas back on, if needed (All Chesapeake Utilities personnel carry ID to be presented upon request)
  • Do not remove fallen trees or do any digging without calling 811 to locate utility lines

In the interest of your safety and the safety of our employees, we are closing our walk-in offices until further notice.

To assist our customers during this difficult time, and potential financial hardship, extended payment arrangements are available, and we have suspended service disconnection and late fees until further notice.

We are monitoring and responding to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Visit SandpiperEnergyresponds.com for alternate bill pay options, and important updates.

We are prepared and will continue our commitment to providing safe, reliable energy.
