Oregon Pending Rate Cases
Cascade Natural Gas files rate increase request with Oregon Public Utility Commission
KENNEWICK, WASH. – May 31, 2018 – Cascade filed a request with the Commission to increase natural gas rates. The main reason for the rate increase request is to recover investments in natural gas facilities to ensure safe and reliable service. The rate revision is offset partially by the decrease in federal income taxes resulting from the Tax Cut and Jobs Act.
If approved, a residential customer’s monthly bill will increase an average of $2.38 or 4.94%, and an industrial customer’s monthly bill will increase an average of $53.71 or 7.52%. No change in rates is proposed for commercial rates.
The proposed increase is for $2.31 million annually over current rates or a 3.53% overall increase.
Cascade serves about 74,000 customers in 28 Oregon communities.
