Step 3b - Post Installation City Permit Inspection (gas log set option only) - After your gas log set is installed by the contractor, you must be present for the final city permit inspection.  Normally the contractor will schedule this for you.  However, they will not be there for the inspection itself.  This may require that you miss work or other scheduled appointments.

Step 3c - Southwest Gas Meter Tie-in (gas log set option only) - After your gas log set is installed by the contractor, you must contact Southwest Gas to make the final gas connection.  This may require that you miss work or other scheduled appointments. 

Overall Project Management - If you feel that you cannot meet the above requirements, you may seek the assistance of family or friends.  However, the legal property owner is still required to be on-site to sign all required forms and to understand how to operate the gas log set.

Failure to comply with the program terms and conditions may result in legal action.
