Gas Utility Main Office
The Rensselaer Gas Utility began in 1961. Natural gas was brought into the City after the voters in a City "Special Election" approved a referendum vote in 1960. Shortly afterwards residential and commercial gas service was offered and at present we have approximately 2862 meters in and around the City.
The goal of the Gas Department is:
To supply our customers with natural gas as safe, efficient and cost effectively as possible
The City of Rensselaer Gas Department continues to look to the future as the City grows, and be ready to respond to our citizens. We also pledge to maintain a well trained workforce able to respond quickly to the needs of our customers.
With the City of Rensselaer Gas Department, safety and training go hand in hand. Training and testing of each employee accomplishes this. Classroom and field exercises are required of all employees. Both hands-on and written exams are used. Each employee is evaluated on each task periodically or as regulation dictates.

The Gas Department is equipped to handle all phases of supplying natural gas to its customers. The Gas Department has the equipment to bore under roads, trench for installations and also has a vacuum excavator truck to use in confined spaces.
