Washington Pending Rate Cases
Cascade Natural Gas files price increase request in Washington
Cascade Natural Gas on March 29 filed a natural gas price increase request with the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission. The proposed increase is for $12.7 million annually over current prices, or a 5.5 percent overall increase.
The main reason for the request is to recover the investments made in infrastructure upgrades, which accounts for about 70 percent of the total request, as well as increased operation and maintenance costs.
If approved, the monthly bill for a residential customer would increase by an average of $2.83 a month, or about $34 annually. The request is for costs related to providing service to customers and does not include the cost of natural gas.
