General Commercial Service
Energy Costs can be one of the major factors in a company’s decision to expand or relocate its operations. At Cascade Natural Gas, we commit to providing our customers with the most cost-effective, clean, and efficient energy source for their business needs.
Cascade assists commercial and industrial businesses with solutions to their energy needs, by providing a number of specialized services including customized cost modeling and comparisons to alternate energy sources.
At Cascade Natural Gas Corporation, we have a tradition of helping industrial customers that goes back more than 50 years. We offer expertise in three key areas – distribution services, upstream capacity services, and gas supply services.
Industrial service is available to customers engaged in a process, which creates or changes raw or unfinished materials into another form or product. Cascade offers distribution service of natural gas to Core Market and Non-Core Market customers, from the city gate to the customer’s facility:
- Core Market Customer
A customer who purchases bundled gas services from Cascade under one tariff that includes gas supply, distribution services from Cascade, and pipeline transportation services.
- Non-Core Market Customer
A customer who purchases unbundled gas services. A non-core customer purchases distribution services from Cascade and purchases gas supply and pipeline transportation services separately.

Service Installation Guidelines
Oregon Wildfire Displacement Protection
In the event a Cascade Natural Gas Oregon customer is under a level 2 or 3 evacuation notice due to wildfires, Cascade will enact a moratorium on the disconnection of service for non-payment on the day the evacuation order is established through the day after the order has been lifted.
A customer who has been disconnected for non-payment within the 72 hours prior to a wildfire evacuation order may request service be reconnected after the order has been lifted. Cascade will make every effort to reconnect the customer.
