Several of my neighbors have mentioned that a man has been asking to be buzzed into their condo buildings, posing as a People's Gas representative, but the company has no record of that service call. Has anyone else in Albany Park run into something like this?

  • Wow, I've only gotten the "other" energy companies that want u to switch to them...they basically get in by ringing all the buzzers hoping someone will let them in...

  • Had a rep stop by yesterday to schedule the installation of upgraded meters. Might be this?

  • I live at Wilson and St. Louis where People's Gas is installing new lines all over. They left a card on our door to get in touch. I called People's Gas main customer service number to verify, and it was legit. So I called the guy back who left the card, and he came over from the job site on Drake, with ID. Turns out they want to move our condo building meters from the basement to outside.

  • Peoples Gas Chicago's natural gas delivery company

    FR, you and your neighbors did the right thing by attempting to verify if it was us trying to gain access to your building. Our employees carry identification and you should always ask to see a company photo ID before allowing utility workers into your home. For our system modernization program, we send letters in advance of working in an area and, in many cases, our crews will knock on doors to schedule appointments.

    Please email me your address and contact information at, and we will check to see if your building is located in one of our areas scheduled for an upgrade. If it is, we will have the supervisor in the area contact you to schedule an appointment.

    Our website,, has information about the program and a map of our work areas.
