Frequently Asked Questions


We have found that most customers who report they have not received their MFA code in their email when attempting to login to their account are using either Hotmail or Outlook as their email client. Hotmail and Outlook have a “Focused Inbox” feature that is enabled by default and presorts emails. This presort feature will often put the MFA code emails in the users junk folder. You can resolve this by classifying the MFA emails as “Not Junk” or by disabling the “Focused Inbox” feature. You can disable “Focused Inbox” by clicking “View” in the top menu and then clicking “Show Focused Inbox.”

We are working with our email administrators to remedy this issue so presort does not classify MFA emails as Junk. Until we have this resolved, please use the method above.

What is Oregon Wildfire Displacement Protection?

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.

When is my meter read?

Cascade Natural Gas goal is to read meters as close to every 30 days as possible. Weekends and holidays may add a day or two to the read dates. Occasionally, it may be necessary to estimate your meter reading due to weather, access, or other reasons. If your meter reading is estimated, the reason will be stated on your bill. All estimates are based on the average monthly consumption for a three-year period if available.
