NW NATURAL ISSUES $16.3 MILLION IN BILL CREDITS TO OREGON CUSTOMERS

This June, NW Natural is once again issuing bill credits to its Oregon customers – this time for $16.3 million.

This means the average residential customer in Oregon will see a credit of roughly $16 on their June bill. Commercial customers will also see a cost-savings. The average small commercial customer in Oregon can expect to receive $72.

“Natural gas is an efficient and reliable energy source for our region, and we’re proud to serve our customers with energy that also provides real value and savings,” said David H. Anderson, NW Natural president and CEO.

For the past 15 years, NW Natural has issued about $140 million in bill credits to Oregon customers due to efficient pipeline capacity management and use of the company’s underground natural gas storage facility at Mist, Oregon.

Washington customers also benefit from the company’s efficiencies. However, instead of showing up as a one-time credit, Washington customers’ credits are included in the monthly billing rate throughout the year.
