COVID-19 Update: A message from your Board Chairman and President/CEO

An important message from the Chairman of the Board and President/CEO

Business Operations

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) issue is impacting many areas of our lives. Here at North Western Electric Cooperative and NW Ohio Propane, we have been proactively monitoring the situation and will continue to do so as the information is being updated.

Gas Odor/Leaks

Everyone knows that safety is important. NW Ohio Propane employees have each received specialized training and certifications in order to safely handle propane when providing services to our customers. But when we are not there, we want you to know what to do to protect your family or employees from any dangers.

Don't Run Out of Gas!

Running out of gas can result in a serious safety hazard, including fire or explosion!

  • If an appliance valve or gas line is left open, a leak can occur when the system is recharged with propane.
  • If your propane tank runs out of gas, any pilot lights on your appliances will go out.  This can be extremely dangerous!
  • A LEAK CHECK IS REQUIRED. A propane retailer or qualified service technician must perform a leak check of your propane system before turning on the gas. This can result in additional fees.
