UGI says it is investing more than a billion dollars over the next decade in an effort to keep gas customers safe.
The company says it is replacing all of its older gas lines with newer pipes and the gas meters that are usually found inside homes will be moved outside.
UGI says moving the meters outside will allow workers to respond to emergencies in a safer and more efficient way.
"The real keys here are safety, customer convenience and the ability to get to a meter in an emergency situation and do the inspection,: said Joseph Swope with UGI.
UGI says it is also looking into the idea of installing smaller meters outside homes in urban areas so they don't stick out too much.
