WASHINGTON | Cascade Natural Gas | Natural Gas – Integrated Resource Plan

The 2023 Natural Gas Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) Technical Advisory Group (TAG) meeting schedule has been filed with the Washington Utilities Transportation and Commission (WUTC). Public participation is essential to Cascade’s process and development of the IRP, therefore, we have coordinated with our stakeholders to hold 5 TAG meetings. Presentation and Microsoft Teams information will be distributed to stakeholders prior to each meeting.

If you, or your organization, would like to participate in the process for the 2023 IRP, or be included in our TAG distribution list, please email [email protected]. You can also contact the Manager of Resource Planning, Mark Sellers-Vaughn at [email protected], the Supervisor of Resource Planning, Brian Robertson at either [email protected] or (509) 221-9808, or the Sr. Resource Planning Economist, Devin McGreal at [email protected], or the Resource Planning Economist II, Ashton Davis, at [email protected].
