Folks, please help me understand master metered gas. I’ve looked over the forum and what i understand is that with master-metered gas, there is a single meter for the park, as opposed to direct service to tenants.
So what are the downsides from a city gas service?
- Is it the fact that the gas lines are owned by the owner?
- And that one would have to sub-meter and bill back?
- Or is it mainly liability?
How does converting to propane (that a lot of people talk about here) solve the problem? If you install 1 big propane tank - don’t you still have gas lines running to people’s homes and have to meter and bill them? As well as make sure it’s safe?
I am just looking at a park with mater-metered gas and need to understand how much of an undertaking it would be.
Thank you for helping me understand this.
