Getting involved in Oregon climate discussions.

Today’s energy landscape has become increasingly complex and there are critical decisions on the horizon – including some that impact Oregon customers of NW Natural. 
We are engaged in a number of fronts to reduce carbon emissions, improve energy efficiency and transition more of our supply to renewable energy. Our Low Carbon Pathway strategy introduces renewable energy for the pipeline with affordability, dependability and resilience in mind. At the same time, we are monitoring Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s executive order to reduce carbon emissions, which is being designed now by state agencies, as well as monitoring proposals from some groups for bans on new natural gas hookups.
At NW Natural, we believe a collaborative effort will lead to the most promising energy future. Our key principles are:
  • All forms of renewable energy are needed in a balanced, low-carbon future. NW Natural is committed to renewable natural gas – gases captured from organic waste streams – clean hydrogen and our vision of a carbon-neutral pipeline by 2050. We are exceeding our 2035 carbon savings goal that starts us down the path toward this vision.
  • Families and businesses should have a choice of energy options to meet their needs. This is not a decision that should be mandated.
  • Communities with natural gas have greater energy reliability. We need a dual energy system – gas and electric– to prepare for what we know is a future of more extreme weather events. Homes and businesses with gas service can have energy even when the power is out.
  • Affordability and leveraging our existing modern system is our priority. We will seek options that ensure a renewable energy future without undermining long-term affordability, dependability and choice.
We encourage you to share your thoughts on these issues so that we can continue to improve our programs and services to meet your needs. Working together, we know the right balance can be achieved.
