Duke Energy to Fort Thomas: Inspectors Will Not Be Duke Employees.

Duke Energy Kentucky, Inc. will be performing inspections on our gas metering equipment and piping located inside buildings in your area. These inspections are required by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) and are necessary for safe natural gas pipeline operations.

The inspection involves the gas piping from the building wall to the outlet of the gas meter. The work to be performed will include an inspection of the exposed gas piping and metering equipment for leakage and corrosion. On average, an inspection should take approximately ten minutes to complete.

Duke Energy Kentucky wants to inform your office of the DOT-required inspection and that we have contracted Southern Cross Corp to complete these inspections at residences and businesses with inside gas meters. The Southern Cross technician will be readily identifiable by:
  • Wearing a visible Southern Cross picture ID on the outside of the uniform; and
  • Having a contact phone number for the customer to call for verification of the Duke
    Energy Kentucky inspection
    Southern Cross technicians will be driving Southern Cross or personal vehicles with a Southern Cross logo, so you and members of your community should not expect to see the technician in a Duke Energy vehicle.

    We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and your community, so please do not hesitate to contact our office should you have any questions concerning these inspections.
