Cascade Natural Gas on Sept. 30, 2021, filed a natural gas price increase request with the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission. The proposed increase is for $13.7 million annually over current prices, or a 5.1% overall increase.

This is a limited issue filing with the UTC to address the most significant reasons behind Cascade under-earning on its investment. The primary drivers of the case are 2020 capital investment and 2021 wage increases.

For an average residential customer using 54 therms per month, the increase is about $2.90 per month, or about $35 annually.

Because of the limited scope of the filing, Cascade is requesting an effective date of April 1, 2022, which coincides with the ending of temporary surcharges currently in customer bills.

Making a request to increase prices is something the company does not take lightly and does its best to balance the cost to customers with the amount of investment necessary to ensure safe and reliable service.
